The Mayor Pete Kennedy
Weekdays 9am - 3pm
Born in Canandaigua NY, Pete Kennedy grew up the youngest of 5 Irish kids. His dad "Ham" was elected as Mayor of the city of Canandaigua and served 14 years while his youngest son Pete stole the title "Mayor". Ham earned the title and Pete pilfered it.
Pete helped a bunch of his buds at St. Marys School to found an actual radio station that played music over the PA system during lunch. Many of the nuns were less than impressed by the musical selections this young mob played over WSMR. Later, "Mayor" also served as captain of his beloved Canandaigua Academy football team the Braves.
After successfully graduating from SUNY Geneseo where he spent many hours "studying" humanity while DJing and bartending at the world famous Inn Between, he headed to the bright lights of the big city of Rochester NY where he's been rockin' Rochester radio waves for 25 years, now crankin' great tunes on 100.5 the Drive.
When not heckling callers and having fun with them on air, he's actively out working' the streets at various community and charitable events. Last year alone he was involved in over 120 events and has plans for many more in 2012.
Jolly ho mate. The Royal Baby arrived on Monday. I have nothing against the little lad, even if he already is better off in life than I am. I'm glad he is healthy, the couple is happy and all is well for the royals. I just can't succumb to the hype. Do Americans remember that we had to fight for our independance from British rule? If it was up to the Brits, we'd all be sipping tea right now as they taxed us for that right. I believe there was a thing called the Boston Tea Party long before it became a part of our last Presidential election. I'm not trying to rain on the world's celebration for the arrival of the future King of Britain. Just adding perspective to the hype. I wish the cute couple and the kid well. If he wants to share some of his gifts (what DO you give a couple who has everything?) it's easy to contact me.....
And speaking of, don't miss Baby Crawl 4 this weekend at Southtown Plaza. Perhaps Kate and Wills will fly in to show off the new bundle of joy......
