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.
Melissa Lawrence of Providence, R.I., was under considerable stress after her 16-year-old daughter was shot in the back by an uninvited guest during a party for a relative’s kindergarten graduation.
So, naturally, a local news team decided to drop in on her to get a sound bite. This video depicts from the cameraman's POV the distressed Lawrence shouting, "Get away from me!" while throwing rocks at the camera. She then sicced her two pit bulls on the news crew.
Reporter Abbey Niezgoda narrates the whole encounter in a ridiculously indignant tone of voice, and includes footage of herself fleeing from the dogs.
