I dont currently have a WP7 and nor do i know how i can look up their app list.....
But i was wondering if WP7 has any good streaming internet radio apps like shoutcast or DJradio. I use these everyday and im curious to see if i can still stream radio (mostly comedy channels)
I dont kno much about slacker as its a paid service on the iphone now, I remember how it was going to still be free for WP7, is it any good, or is it more like pandora, which im not a big fan of
P.S. regardless i plan on getting a WP7, so it doesnt really even matter, just trying to make a smooth transition

There are quite a few. You can browse the Market Place if you download the Zune software.
There is Last.FM a slacker like clone. There is I Heart Radio, TuneIn , RadioHub, etc.
There is also pay services like Rhapsody.
But the BEST deal by far is a Zune Pass. You can download and stream all the music you want, as much as you want, from an amazingly large collection of artists. You have access to it as long as you have the monthly subscription, and every month you get 10 songs to download for life (you keep them when you no longer have the service). it is built into the phone and works beautifully. There is a free 14 day trial, TRY IT! It makes the phone amazing! Best music solution ever, period, for any device.

I've used Slacker for free for years and love it. My wife loves it too and still uses it on my old Blackberry connected via wi-fi. I've always preferred the music it picks for me over Pandora, it just seems to stay within the genre I am looking for rather than selecting stuff I don't like the majority of the time (which Pandora seems to do every time I've tried using it).
