Astronomy Lectures (for adults)
Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series - Podcasts
Free, non-technical talks (but more appropriate for adults) about once a month at Foothill College. Come hear the talks in person or download the podcasts.
Science Music for Kids
Their CD "Here Comes Science" contains 19 science songs for kids (and parents won't mind listening to them either).
Local, Santa Cruz group that produces science songs for kids. Mostly earth, ocean, and biological topics.
Music for Adults
Definitely NOT for kids. This group was kind enough to allow us to use their song "Bed A' Nails" in our shows and videos, so we wanted to give them a little plug. They are often compared to the group Barenaked Ladies. Check them out.
