Weekdays from 3pm - 7pm
Born in Canandaigua NY, Pete Kennedy grew up the youngest of 5 Irish kids of Marian and T. Hamilton Kennedy. 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 back on the air at 95.1 the Brew.
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.
Now that we have reached a successful ending in Boston after Friday's craziness, here's a couple of quick thoughts:
....the cops always win! No matter if you are a stupid criminal or a rogue terrorist wreaking havoc on our everyday lives, the police are smarter and better equipped and trained, and they will hunt you down and win. God bless the cops.
....funny how politicians fight their way into the camera angles so they can be seen. They really don't deserve the credit but have no problem taking it when the cameras and lights are on.
....if I was in charge last night, I would have immediately said to the good people of Boston: "Thank you for your patience. Thanks to all the law enforcement professionals who did their job and make a safe. Please remember our victims of this senseless tragedy. Now, please go out and celebrate that America and Boston has won a big battle against evil. I am waiving the laws for one weekend so all Boston bars and restaurants can remain open as long at they want until Monday morning to revitalize our economy and celebrate America's victory. God bless Boston and our troops!" But, I'm just a dumb DJ and not a politician, so what do I know?
....I know there are people in Rochester who care! Read below and go support tonight....
