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.
Who doesn't love a great parade? It's a summer tradition when fire departments stage their annual carnivals to support their volunteer organizations. These departments rely on the carnivals to help with funding their volunteer organizations who are here for small communities 24/7. The Webster Fire Dept. is hosting it's annual carnival this wknd. at the Firemen's Field on Barrett St. It all kicks off with tonight's parade which has added meaning this year.
The parade will be dedicated to the memory of two fallen heroes who were tragically taken while responding on Christmas Eve morning to a house fire on Lake Rd. We all know what happened when they arrived on scene. West Webster Firefighters Mike Chiapperini (a Lt. in the Webster Police Dept.) and Tomasz Kaczowka were gunned down by a madman and many lives were changed forever. Tonight these heroes will be honored with a ceremony kicking off the parade.
The tribute begins at 6:30p at Ridge Rd. and Phillips Rd. The parade will wind it's way to the Firemen's Field on Barrett. A huge crowd is expected as a community honors it's fallen heroes. God bless Chip and Tomasz and their families.
