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.
Perfect weather...perfect blue sky...perfect day to take in a game! There's plenty of choices for a beautiful 58* Saturday in November:
>>SOCCER! The U of R hosts SUNYIT in a NCAA Division III MATCH AT 5p.
The Lancers open their season at the Blue Cross Arena vs. Baltimore at 7p.
>>FOOTBALL! St. John Fisher hosts the Courage Bowl to benefit Camp Good Days at 1p at Growney Stadium against Alfred College. The best part is that kids from Camp Good Days are honorary captains and will be on the sun splashed sidelines cheering on the teams.
Aquinas, ranked #1 in NYS takes on #6 Jamestown in the state quarterfinals at Sahlens Stadium at 6p, preceeded by Class B matchup featuring Geneva and Depew at 3p.
The Bills host the Jets on an expected 60* Sunday afternoon at Ralph Wilson Stadium at 1p. Thanks to Ralph, the game will be on TV since Mr. Wilson bought all the remaining tickets to ensure a sellout.
Good news for Buffalo Bills fans, and just as importantly, area vets. The Bills announced Fri. morning that owner Ralph Wilson has bought up all remaining tickets for Sunday's game against the New York Jets. That means that fans will be able to watch the game on local TV if they don't go to the stadium, and our vets will benefit from Mr. Wilson's generosity.
"Mr. Wilson has again generously guaranteed the purchase of the remaining tickets for this weekend's game," said Bills President and CEO Russ Brandon. "As part of our Salute to Service initiative, Mr. Wilson has donated the proceeds of all remaining tickets sold to Wounded Warrior Project."
Tickets will be available through game time on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased on BuffaloBills.com, Ticketmaster.com or by calling 1-877-BB-TICKS.
You can tell the battle royale for the hearts and thumbs of gamers is on as Sony and Microsoft unveil their latest game systems this week for the first time since 2006. Just in time for the holidays, Sony takes the first shot Friday with the release of Playstation 4. This system has 10 times the computing power of PS3, a new controller and a small touch-screen that updates and improves interactivity. Also new to PS4 is a "share" button that will allow players to send video clips online for their buds to see and play with. Gamers will fork over $399 as of Fri. if lucky enough to score the new system at a store, although retailers like Best Buy and GameStop have already presold many of the prized toys. Some of those are already being sold on eBay for $600 and up.
Meanwhile Microsoft rolls out it's new Xbox One on Nov. 22 with a powerful new Kinect controller that can serve as your Skype camera, and will recognize your face biometrically. That part is creepy to me because I'm not a "gadget guy" and it is a bit weird when a game recognizes me by face. Hell, some of my own friends sometimes don't recognize me! :) The visuals are much crisper and richer and voice commands guide the game. It's been 8 years since Xbox 360 hit stores and obviously the new system is light years ahead of what is in your house right now. 16% of US homes with broadband Internet connections are planning to buy a game system this holiday season according to s survey by Park Associates. Microsoft is trying to grab their share by pricing the new Xbox One at $499, although it's already being hawked online for over $1000.
Over $11.3 billion was spent in 2012 on console and hand held games, while another $1.2 bil was spent on mobile and portable versions. This holiday kickoff ups the ante. So, hope you've saved your sheckles if you want to be the hip kid on the block. Or, better said, if your kid wants to be the hipster at the controller. Game on!
