It's no secret that Pandora has pulled in a lot of new listeners since it unveiled its iPhone application. On Monday's Edison/BlogTalkRadio panel/webcast, Pandora's Tim Westergren said that 70% of those hearing Pandora on their iPhones were new listeners. While the differences between Pandora and conventional terrestrial stations undoubtedly resonate for some of those new listeners, others are clearly there because of Pandora's very prominent location in the new shopping center. CBS Radio's iTunes application is typical of its aggressive approach to new platforms. Entercom has made its stations available through Flycast. But a lot of broadcasters are undoubtedly unspoken for on this new outpost of the Infinite Dial.
So it's worth mentioning another new iPhone application that gives most streaming broadcasters their own kiosk in the mall as well. It's the WunderRadio application from WeatherUnderground (the weather site, not the other guys who have been in the news lately) in conjunction with radio directory/stream aggregator RadioTime.com.
