Best Alternative To Kiddy Music

Nothing against Raffi, who surely means well, but his and other children's CDs are really not meant for adult ears. So tell your tiny tot to just grow up . . . because we happen to live in a city with a really topnotch classical radio station. Let your tyke listen to KBAQ. Often. Besides being a lovely and peaceful alternative to Raffi or the Toy Story 2 soundtrack, it's a fantastic source for bedtime lullaby music. And once the kids are about 12, just see who's smarter: yours, or the ones down the street who've been listening to "The Wheels on the Bus" for the last decade.
