Franken wins "World Achievement Award for Breakthrough Radio"

It doesn't appear to be a scam like those Who's Who books that you need to spend money to get printed in, but I get the feeling the New York Festival awards aren't exactly something Franken is going to put at the top of his bio.

From their press release:

The special award will be selectively and only periodically given to one radio on-air talent who has significantly made a great political or cultural impact in his country and/or throughout the world. Franken will be given the World Achievement Award at a special tribute at the 23rd annual International Radio Programming and Promotions Awards show at New York City's China Club on Monday, June 27 at 8:00 p.m...

Here's the complete schedule:

8:00 pm: awards start

8:59 pm: Franken's complete worldwide cultural and political impact enumerated in detail

9:00 pm: Al receives award

10:00 pm: first intermission in Al's acceptance speech

11:00 pm: second intermission in Al's acceptance speech

12:00 am: janitorial staff arrives, begins cleaning room

1:00 am: Al finishes speech
