Our special guest is Houston-raised actress Cindy Pickett. Cindy — whose father was the revered acting teacher, Cecil Pickett — may be best known for her role as Ferris’ mom in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off and for her critically-acclaimed performance in I Know My First Name Is Steven. Cindy had featured roles on television’s Guiding Light and St. Elsewhere and starred in Roger Vadim’s erotic cult film, Night Games.

And, dig it: Cindy and Rag Blog editor Thorne Dreyer were high school homies at Houston’s Bellaire where they both studied theater with her father, Cecil Pickett, who later taught and directed at the University of Houston.

Cindy Pickett will also be Dreyer’s guest Friday, 2-3 p.m., on Rag Radio, a syndicated radio show that originates on Austin’s KOOP 91.7-FM. The show is streamed live here.

Maria’s Taco Xpress is located at 2529 S Lamar Blvd in Austin. Maria’s food and full bar will be available and Leeann Atherton and her band will perform on the patio.
