Manchester Orchestra

First, a recent report puts Georgia 41st in the nation for its quality of senior health. According to America’s Health Rankings Senior Report, that’s two slots lower than last year. We talk about senior health in the state with Kathy Floyd of the Georgia Council on Aging and Glenn Osster of the Institute of Gerontology at the University of Georgia.

Atlanta band Manchester Orchestra has been going strong since 2004, having performed at big festivals like Shaky Knees, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo. But the band reached a new peak in fame after scoring the 2016 cult film “Swiss Army Man” with Daniel Radcliffe and Paul Dano.

The new film “Swiss Army Man” tells the story of a shipwrecked man who befriends a corpse. The soundtrack was composed by Andy Hull and Robert McDowell. They're part of the Atlanta-indie rock band Manchester Orchestra and join us to add two more tunes to our Georgia Playlist.  They pick songs by  Gnarls Barkley of Atlanta and Neutral Milk Hotel of Athens.
