Andrew WK & Glenn Beck

Well, here’s a thing. Party advocate and self-help guru Andrew WK has been given a show on ring wing commentator Glenn Beck’s radio network TheBlaze. The two hour show, ‘America WK’, will broadcast its first edition this Saturday.

In a statement, Andrew WK said of the news: “When Glenn asked me to do my own radio show on TheBlaze, I was shocked but excited, as I knew he would allow me the unrestrained freedom to say exactly what I wanted. I’m very dedicated to exploring and learning from different people in different places, and always with an open heart. If people never went outside their own box, life would be boring. After all, why would I only want to talk with people who already think exactly like me?”

Beck added: “My relationship with Andrew WK is a perfect example of how two people can come together on what unites us, and become strange bedfellows. He is open minded, honest, loves his fellow man even though he may disagree with him, and is a natural entertainer. Our mutual audiences have already begun to find commonalities. I think he is the perfect fit for TheBlaze Radio Network”.

How might this unlikely relationship have formed? Well, BuzzFeed has put together this timeline of its brief history.

You’ll be able to tune into the show on Saturday here. Though as the actual time of the broadcast hasn’t been announced, you might have to listen to some stuff that annoys you first.
