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.
I bet you think the Social Security people are here to take money out of your paycheck, invest it and then give it back to you when you get older. Hopefully they're doing their job better than the IRS lately, right? Well apparently they've also joined the baby business. Here's the evidence:
Social Security Reveals the Most Popular Baby Names in New York for 2012
See the list at www.socialsecurity.gov
The Social Security Administration today announced the most popular baby names in New York for 2012. Michael and Sophia topped the list.
The top five boys and girls names for 2012 in New York were:
1) Michael 1) Sophia
2) Jacob 2) Isabella
3) Jayden 3) Emma
4) Ethan 4) Olivia
5) Mason 5) Ava
So, if you're having a baby soon (congrats!) there's a starter list for you and your lucky partner to fight over. Good luck, and I hope the SSA people get back to keeping a close eye on OUR money in their real jobs....
