It must be tiring to be Andrew W.K. He can never go out, catch a band, maybe have a couple of beers, and be home by midnight. No, the second he steps into the room, suddenly it’s all positive partying and motivational speeches until the break of dawn. And because a hard-partying wild man is nothing if he’s not unpredictable, W.K. announced today that he’s hosting a radio show on Glenn Beck’s multimedia network TheBlaze, prompting party dudes across the nation to pause mid-beer can crush and say, “wait, what?”
Called America W.K., the radio show will air on Saturday afternoons and will feature the “Party Hard” singer discussing “meaning, motivation, mindset, and making dreams come true, all included in a celebration of life itself–and all with a positive and honest outlook,” according to the press release. W.K. will also take calls from listeners in need of encouragement. So, like Delilah, only with manic affirmations and white jeans instead of cooing reassurance and sappy love songs.
Although Andrew W.K. and Glenn Beck might seem (okay, definitely seem) like an odd pairing, W.K. appears to be the kind of guy who is willing to give most anyone or anything a chance, because he’s cool like that. To this effect, he says, “I’m very dedicated to exploring and learning from different people in different places, and always with an open heart…After all, why would I only want to talk with people who already think exactly like me?”
Glenn Beck, on the other hand, once teamed up with Vince Vaughn, so he’s a bit of a wild man himself.
