Today Pandora is expanding from Simon & Garfunkel to Seinfeld and George Carlin. The Internet radio service is adding 10,000 comedy clips from over 700 comedians to its existing music library.
A host of big names have already taken the stage, including: Bill Cosby, Bob Newhart, Cheech & Chong, Chris Rock, Eddie Murphy, George Carlin, Jerry Seinfeld, Joan Rivers, Richard Pryor, Mitch Hedberg.
"Adding comedians to the mix has been one of the top requests from our listeners," Pandora founder Tim Westergren wrote in a blog post. "We've taken the same approach to comedy as we have to music: carefully and deliberately analyzing comedic 'bits' across a very large number of attributes to capture the style, delivery and content of each performance."
Good news for Blackberry owners. In addition to Slacker, IHeartRadio, with over 150 regional stations, is now available for the handheld. Pandora is also streaming their music service with included custom and pre-made stations with its music genome technology. If you already have Pandora, you can log in on your existing station. The two applications will work with Blackberry Bolds, Pearls and Curves and is supported by Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. Unfortunately, T-Mobile phones are not compatible.
