The Al Franken Show was the flagship talk show of the former talk radio network, Air America Radio. Hosted by Al Franken, it featured commentary and interviews arguing for left-wing positions on the issues of the day, and comically poking fun at the George W. Bush Administration. The show began as The O'Franken Factor on March 31, 2004. Between January 3, 2006, and February 14, 2007, the show was recorded and broadcast from the 28th floor of the historic Foshay Tower in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. Prior to that date it was based in New York City. The final show was broadcast on February 14, 2007, the day Franken announced his candidacy for the United States Senate in 2008.
Franken is a comedian, satirist and now United States Senator who has written several books, including the 2003 Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right. He was a writer and performer on Saturday Night Live, where he usually teamed with fellow writer/performer Tom Davis.
