Best radio stations to listen to during Christmas

Radio listening

Some people would be happy to hear them all year long and others get tired of them after one week of listening: Christmas songs! In the month of December, all you hear on most radio stations are Christmas songs. Some stations are even entirely dedicated to this genre of music. When you hear the first Christmas songs on the radio, after many months without them, you know it is time to get into the holiday vibe. 

December is a very important month for radio stations. Listeners are eager to listen to Christmas music and this makes them listen to the radio more than they usually do. This is very beneficial for radio station owners, because new listeners will discover their radio station and if they like what they hear, they might stick around after Christmas.

Choosing the best radio station to listen to during the holidays is not an easy task. Not all Christmas music is the same. Of course, there are some songs that everyone knows and loves, but there are also many bad and annoying Christmas songs. Apart from the song preference, some people want to hear Christmas music all day, while others want to hear a variety of songs, alternated with Christmas songs.
