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.

She's 16-years-old. Beautiful. Amazing voice. Sir Elton John says "you just open your mouth in wonder" about her. Her real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor, but you know her as Lorde, the new Queen atop the Billboard Hot 100 chart. While other kids her age are addicted to their smartphone, tablet and other teens wandering the hallways at school, this New Zealander has an obsession with aristocracy. "Everything that happened to a royal family in, like, the 17th century is just absurd, but cool" she told USA Today in an article published on Sept. 25. Hence the title of her song "Royals" which has claimed the top spot of Billboard's hit chart. By the way, she knocked off another teen Miley Cyrus who was number one for 2 weeks with Wrecking Ball". Which of these two teens would you bet your hard earned money on for the future?
