Farmer's Market/Fanny/Golden Age of Latin Rock/Sound Advice


Oak Park Farmer's Market A local farmers market is going to start accepting food stamps. Today on Insight, we'll talk about it with the manager of the Oak Park Farmers Market.

The Oak Park Farmer's Market runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays through Oct. 16th at the corner of 35th Street and Broadway.

Fanny One of the pioneering women rock bands came out of Sacramento. The group was Fanny and it was founded by sisters June and Jean Millington. They were born in the Philippines and their family moved to Sacramento in the early '60s. Fanny made several albums in the early '70s and had success in both the US and the UK. June and Jean still play together from time to time and plan to record this summer. They also hold girls music camps.

Golden Age of Latin Rock The story of the Golden Age of Latin Rock is being told in Sacramento. It's an exhibit of memorabilia from the collection of a key behind-the-scenes member of the Latin Rock movement: Bernardo Gonzalez, also known as Doctor Rock. He was a concert promoter and manager of the band Malo. You'll meet him and hear about the exhibit.
