Earl Pitts: American
Everyone knows an Earl Pitts – the nationally syndicated radio commentator with the daily editorials that begin with, “Ya know what makes me sick?”
Well wake up America! This weekend, June 5 and 6, meet the original on “Kentucky Afield” television. Gary Burbank, the voice behind the Earl Pitts character, joins host Tim Farmer to get away from social stresses for some farm pond fishing in Mason County. Enjoy Burbank’s take on the opinionated Earl Pitts and his wacked-out thoughts on solving of life’s quandaries. Burbank, an air personality for decades in Louisville and Cincinnati, still calls Kentucky home. Like Pitts, Burbank loves to fish.
Also on the show, we meet craftsman extraordinaire Kevin Brown. At his Irvington workshop, he makes traditional recurve bows that are the envy of archers everywhere.
Lastly, is anyone hungry for rabbit pie? Washington County’s Marion Mulligan has the rabbit recipe.
