Everyone knows Kathy Garver as “Cissy Davis” from Family Affair, the beloved CBS sitcom that will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary in 2016. But Cissy Davis and Family Affair are just part of the fabric of Kathy’s life and career, which includes early roles in such films as The Ten Commandments and Night of the Hunter, a host of stage credits in venues across the country (including a recent turn as Aunt Polly in Tom Sawyer), and a long list of credits as a voice artist on many animated series, audio books and the nationally syndicated Twilight Zone Radio series. But, for all her accomplishments, Kathy remains very much the same down-to-earth person that she was growing up—and she owes that to the values that were instilled in her by her family, her faith, and her core group of friends, many of which have been in her life since she was a girl.


Kathy shares her story in her new book, Surviving Cissy: My Family Affair of Life in Hollywood, which we’ll discuss when she joins us in our second hour.

Kathy Garver has several appearances across the country over the next few weeks, including stops in Los Angeles, Chicago, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Tennessee and Kentucky. To find out if she’s coming to a city near you, go to KathyGarver.com. If you’d like an autographed edition of Surviving Cissy, you can order it directly from Kathy herself at KathyGarver.com.


This week’s program will also include a return visit from our friend Rita Lakin. Rita not only spent more than two decades in television writing and producing such shows as Dr. Kildare, Peyton Place, The Mod Squad, Dynasty and The Movie of the Week, but was one of the first solo female writers in network television—at a time (mid 1960s through the late 1980s) when the industry was still very much an old boys network.

Rita didn’t know it at the time, but she paved the way for other women writers and producers in television. Even more remarkable is that she did all this while overcoming one of the worst tragedies anyone can endure. She talks about this, and more, in her new book, The Only Woman in the Room: Episodes from My Life and Career as a T.... Rita will join us in our first hour.

Rita Lakin will be appearing at Book Passages in Corte Madera, CA on Saturday, Oct. 24. She will also be honored by the Writers Guild Women’s Committee and The Committee for Career Longevity in Los Angeles, CA on Tuesday, Nov. 3. For more information on these and other upcoming events, go to RitaLakin.com.
