Pandora Radio adds laughs to its music mix

image Oakland-based online music service Pandora Radio is expanding into comedy. Its so-called Comedy Genome Project is at 10,000 clips and growing, with sketches that span 12 genres—such as Comedy Icons and Political Comedy—from more than 700 comedians, blogs founder and CEO Tim Westergren:
