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.
Johnny Depp got spanked by a bunch of yellow minions of Steve Carell over the long holiday. Despicable Me 2 took out The Lone Ranger! "Despicable" set records while Tonto may be Depp's biggest bomb of his career. Despicable Me 2 hauled in $142 million, the highest five-day debut of an animated film ever. Meanwhile, The Lone Ranger made only about $49 million since opening Wed., a big drop from it's cost of $225 mil. to produce. Here's the numbers at the box office over the holiday weekend:
1) Despicable Me 2 $82.5 million
2) The Lone Ranger $29.4 mil
3) The Heat (Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy) $25 mil
4) Monsters University $19.6 mil
5) World War Z (Brad Pitt) $18.2 mil
By the way, I took in Seth Rogen's "This Is The End" Fri. night and it was a blast! It has gross moments but is filled with 2 hours of hilarious entertainment as the stars (Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride, Rihanna, Channing Tatum and more) all play themselves in a unique flick that mocks Hollywood and keeps you on the edge of insanity. If you need a good laugh to transition back into the work week, I highly recommend it!
