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.
Green Day lead man Billie Jo Armstrong told BBC Radio 2 this weekend that the band is getting ready to take an extended break. They will do Soundwave 2014 in Australia in February and March 2014, then take the break to '"recharge the batteries" said Armstrong.
My question: didn't they just have a long break after Billie Jo had his infamous meltdown at the 2012 iHeartRadio Music Festival? Remember that he went off to rehab for an extended stay then? Now more time off? Must be great to be a rockstar, huh?
If you are lucky enough to have a warm place to enjoy this frosty holiday, I hope it's a fantastic Thanksgiving. If you don't have a plan, my friend Patty Hotchkiss has a tradition that you are welcome to join in Canandaigua. Patty owns a great little diner aptly named Patty's Place on S. Main St. in downtown Canandaigua, just feet away from the Main St. railroad tracks. Patty is generous enough to open her restaurant every year at this time to feed anyone who needs a hot meal, all free of charge and served by wonderful people who share the holiday spirit. Many come to volunteer their time as I have over the years. I will be attending a wedding and will unfortunately miss this holiday tradition this Thursday. Trust me when I say it is a wonderful experience as so many feel Patty's love and dine on a great meal. May Patty and all her friends have a grand feast, and I wish you and all a happy and safe holiday ahead.

Twitterverse has blown up, not only because of what happened on "Family Guy" on Sunday night.
