WATCH: The amazing moment Andrew WK played a piano from the Ukraine uprising

During a full hour interview with rocker Andrew W.K., Glenn asked Andrew to do something a little different - play piano. But it wasn't just any piano, it was a piano recovered from the uprising in the Ukraine. Watch the video below and get more on the story:

Below is a transcript of the full segment:

Glenn: There’s two things, we’re just having a conversation off air. Would you just say about the audience what you just said a minute ago? I want you to hear this.

Andrew: I never expected to be given the opportunity to be here to engage with you, you, but everyone’s been so kind. It’s been really surprising. I didn’t have any expectation, but I did not expect the level of advanced feedback, support, people introducing me to other ideas that they thought I would like, and even my own friends and family and fans have responded well. I thought there would be a lot of backlash about me talking about these kind of ideas at all being a rock ‘n roller, very much into partying, but I’ve been very, very happy that people are also thinking about this too, of course.

Glenn: Now, we were just talking about prayer, and what I love about this show is yesterday we had James Dobson on. We have Andrew W.K. on today. And your idea of prayer, you said you didn’t add one thing in here for one reason or another, but you wish you, you kind of wish you would have in a way.

Andrew: Well, there’s only so much I can say in the column because I do try to keep it brief. I’m working on a book and would like to be able to write 100 pages about that. Because actually I got feedback. There were some people that said, “Andrew, you should’ve told him not to pray. That is wasting time. People that pray are asking for special treatment that think they’re better than other people. You know, you’re asking something else to fix your problems rather than taking responsibility.” And so those are things I had thought about addressing in the column but didn’t, so it was good to see people feeding back.

What I had to say to that is I used to think prayer was asking for stuff too. It’s not. It’s asking for the ability to do whatever you’re supposed to do. Now with me being a joy boy, I ask for the strength to be able to manifest joy to do that. I don’t ask for joy to be made for me; I ask to be empowered by the unknown, the world, God, whatever you want to call it, to do what I can do at my very best. I’m not asking someone to solve my problem; I’m asking for the strength to solve it myself. So by praying, you don’t necessarily remove responsibility; you actually find deeper power to fulfill those responsibilities on your own.

Glenn: We were talking about Viktor Frankl being able to man search for meaning. That’s what I pray for, being able to…hopefully none of us ever have to go through anything like that but to be able to get to the place to where you are so clear that you’re just like whatever happens, I’m okay, I’m okay, because they can’t rob me of the essence of who I am, and I’m just going to do what I’m supposed to do and have that ultimate faith in God, in the universe, whatever you want to call it. For me, it’s faith in God. I know what I know. That’s all I want.

Andrew: That’s like the soul, you can put someone in prison, you can beat someone, you can put them through hell, and yet their soul, especially when you’re as strong as this individual was, his soul stayed intact and in fact was perhaps made stronger. The ordeals, whenever you’re going through something, it’s nice to say not just what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger but that perhaps I was meant that I’m going to add more to the world through this challenge.

Glenn: Did you follow what happened in Ukraine with, you know, when they had the protests on the streets? They were fighting the Russians, and the guys, the protesters, just the twenty-something, the guys who look like you that were out on the streets, and they were just standing against, you know, the military, and they were just like we just want to be free, did you follow that?

Andrew: Was this more recently?

Glenn: No, just more recently. This is the last, what, two years ago or a year ago, Tiffany?

Andrew: Was this when they took over the house –

Glenn: Kiev.

Andrew: Yeah, okay, well, I was just reading about that again. So yes, somewhat, but what are these young men, they –

Glenn: Okay, so all they wanted was they just wanted to be aligned with the West. They didn’t want to go back to an old Soviet kind of empire. Come walk with me for a second. These guys build, they took cars, and they cut cars, hoods of trucks and cars. They were standing against the military.

Andrew: This is an actual bat?

Glenn: Yep, and this was just cut off of a –

Andrew: Oh, like a shield.

Glenn: Yeah, for a shield. Okay, this piano here was sitting in Kiev in the main square, this piano. It’s horribly out of tune. We haven’t had it tuned since it got here.

Andrew: That’s all right. You may leave it like that, you know? It was tuned by the event.

Glenn: You learned how to play when you were what, four?

Andrew: Yeah, around there.

Glenn: Do you mind playing something? Nothing appropriate has been played on this.

Andrew: No one’s played music on it?

Glenn: We’ve played music on it, but I don’t know if we…have we played anything really appropriate on it? I don’t think so.

Andrew: Appropriate, like?

Glenn: Something to you that speaks freedom, liberty.

Andrew: Okay.

Glenn: Whatever. Whew, that’s out of tune.

Andrew: It sounds like a honky-tonk piano.

Glenn: Yeah. Back in a second. Have you ever played a piano that out of tune before?

Andrew: Yes and missing a lot more keys. It’s amazing how intact it is.

President Donald Trump's performance at last night's final presidential debate was "brilliant" and "the best he's ever done," Glenn Beck said on the radio program Friday.

Glenn described the moments he thought President Trump came across as "sincere," "kind," and "well-informed," as well as Joe Biden's biggest downfalls for of the night — from his big statement on wanting to eliminate the oil industry to his unsurprising gaffes as the debate neared the end. But, the question remains: was Trump's "brilliant performance" enough to win the election?

This is a moment "Cynical Theories" author James Lindsay probably hoped would never come. The liberal mathematician and host of the "New Discourses Podcast" recently came out as "unhappily" voting Republican, including for President Donald Trump, because the Democratic Party is now being controlled by a far-left movement that seeks to destroy our country and the U.S. Constitution.

He joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Thursday to explain why this election isn't "Trump versus Biden." It's Trump versus a "movement that wants to tear apart American society at its very foundation." Lindsay warned that if it isn't stopped, the left can toss out our rights by rewriting the Constitution — or abolishing it altogether.

"A lot of people don't understand what's happening with the election we have right now," he said. "They think it's a choice between Donald Trump and Joe Biden. And at the surface level, of course, it is. We're voting for each candidate to be duly put into the office of president. But that's not what we really have going on. We have, in Donald Trump, a man who's going to govern as we've all seen — the way he feels like he's going to govern. And we have in Joe Biden, a man captured by a movement that wants to tear apart the American society at its very foundation."

Lindsay noted the popular leftist narratives that call to "abolish anything they don't like," which now includes the U.S. Constitution. He added that "this is the movement that is controlling the Democratic Party."

"It is my belief, that there has been a largely effective kind of silent coup of the Democratic Party, that's turned it completely under the control of this movement. And that's what we're going to be electing with Joe Biden. So I can't do it," he said.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET, 8 p.m. CT, Glenn Beck goes straight to the source of the biggest story in the country with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who takes us directly into Hunter Biden's alleged laptop.

Despite Big Tech's attempts to squash this story, there should be a mad scramble in the media to get to the bottom of major corruption allegations, but they're willfully ignoring it. However, this is not just a story about Hunter Biden. This is all about Joe Biden. It's a story Glenn has been investigating for over a year that traces back to Ukraine and China. It goes directly to the root of corruption within our political system: How politicians use their family members to enrich the entire clan and sell out their country. While the media looks the other way, Glenn asks Mayor Giuliani to show us the evidence. Giuliani details the chain of possession of the laptop and reveals news that he only had possession of the laptop days before the New York Post story broke. He says, "I reported this the day after I saw it."

He also drops a major bombshell on the show and says Big Tech doesn't want you to see evidence that "establishes with texts, documents, contracts" that "Joe Biden was a 10% partner with a Chinese communist … and there are witnesses that will come forward and testify to it."

The Senate Judiciary Committee was set to vote on subpoenas to compel Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to testify on alleged censorship and bias across their platforms. But that all changed when Republican committee members "expressed reservation about the maneuver," Politico reports.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who chairs Judiciary's Subcommittee on the Constitution, was definitely not one of the committee members with cold feet. On the radio program Tuesday, he told Glenn Beck that he's fighting "vociferously" to ensure Dorsey and others testify before the November 3rd election.

"Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are both going to testify. They're are going to testify in person. They're going to testify before Election Day. That's what I think should happen," Cruz said. "That's what I'm fighting vociferously to happen. Right now, the companies are negotiating with the chairman's office to discuss terms to come voluntarily. I don't give a damn whether they come voluntarily or under subpoena. They need to testify in person and answer questions for the American people about why they are trying to steal this election, to suppress the free speech, and to censor the press."

The subpoenas would require Big Tech leaders to testify on the alleged "suppression and/or censorship" of two consecutive blockbuster stories from the New York Post. The first story was about emails that allegedly came from Hunter Biden's computer which are currently being investigated by the FBI, and the second was based on additional emails that allegedly showed communist China directly offering millions of dollars to then-Vice President Joe Biden.

"Big Tech stepped in, and they've done something they've never done before," Cruz explained. "We know that Big Tech has been censoring individual conservatives, trying to suppress conservative speech. But the step they took here is, they blocked if any individual user tried to share either of the New York Post stories, [they] were blocked ... Sharing a news story, from a major media outlet is part of democracy, part of free speech. And not only that, they blocked the New York Post itself. Right now, today, the New York Post is not being allowed to post its own damn stories on corruption. This is ridiculous. It's a threshold that's never been crossed before, of Silicon Valley oligarchs declaring the authority to determine what the press is allowed to report, and who is allowed to see it."
