Catfish is one brave guy! The Sweetwater Jaycees bring 3 rattlesnakes for a visit to the Morning Show!

When we hear rattling, most of us start running! The Sweetwater Jaycees don't run, they're looking to collect as many rattlesnakes as they can!


It's time for this snake to rattle for our listeners!
The Rattlesnake Roundup begins on Thursday, March 10th with the Rattlesnake Review Parade at 4:30 and the Miss Snake Charmer Scholarship Pageant at 7pm.
