Because you’re so patient when I take a while to post recent shows, I have a gift for you. Here are two episodes of the limited-edition program that we aired exclusively during the summer of 2011. If I could find the dern program guide for this landmark era, I would reproduce the show description for you here; alas. In a nutshell, Move Your Ass was a show in which DJs encouraged listeners to nurture their health by following along with workout records. It was a 30-minute show that aired on weeknights, Monday through Thursday. The show has been discontinued and will be missed…but by now we’ve built a respectable “fitness” section in our music library…! Freeform radio at its finest.

This show aired during the first week ever of Move Your Ass and features helium balloons. The health disclaimers herein became recorded intros and promos for the program during the summer. Jen Johnson (of “It’s Hot In Here” fame) and I tag-teamed this one. Some choice moments: “Why can’t they afford a full-size leotard? Or a full-size child?” “It’s really hard to go to your work when you’re sweaty all the time. I should know.” Put the snippets into context by working out with us–

This other show aired later, after Jen had hurried off to Uganda to be eaten by crocodiles. I was left to my own devices, which included a maximum strength weight loss subliminal tape program, Jewish stretching, a toy monkey, double the Bonnie Prudden, and more. By listening, you can discover what the high-pitched squeaking of Mickey Mouse sounds like when the LP is sped up to 45 rotations per minute (that does the trick when there are no helium balloons floating around). This episode of Move Your Ass is dedicated to the kids. including those that are not yet born. the belly babies.
