Marty Sanders–guitarist and herpetologist

Marty Sanders–guitarist with Jay And The Americans, perhaps best known for such 60s hits as “Come A Little Bit Closer” and “This Magic Moment,” and still performing a slew of concerts across the country each year–discusses his lifelong interest in reptiles (as a kid, they reminded him of dinosaurs) and growing expertise as something of a herpetologist, how he’s regularly called upon near his upstate New York home to relocate Timber Rattlesnakes that have foraged from their dens or the woods very close to houses and educate the affected residents, how he now shares his home with various Australian reptiles (monitor lizards, skinks, etc) but not snakes; he also responded to a number of listener questions, and more.
