Al Franken in LR

Posted By on Wed, May 3, 2006 at 10:23 AM

No, we're not referring to "Air America," which has just begun broadcasting on 1380AM in Little Rock, though that timing is good. The comedian and commentator will be in town in person July 29 for a major fund-raiser by Planned Parenthood at the grand ballroom of the Clinton Library. That's a Saturday. The event is scheduled from 7 to 10 p.m. Tickets will cost $150. A good time for a good cause.

Maybe we'll get lucky, as when Franken appeared for the Rep, and they'll do a live performance of the show open to the public on the Friday before the fund-raiser.
