BOSTON ( TheStreet) -- When you've heard "Do They Know It's Christmas" for the 13th time this season, think of the holiday retail workers and all-holiday radio DJs who've heard it 13,000 times and thank God it's them instead of you.The all-holiday radio season is in full swing, with broadcast and cable tracking firm Media Monitors saying that more than 33 stations nationwide have made the switch already. Even Web-based Pandora and Sirius-XM (SIRI - Get Report) satellite radio have launched their holiday stations this week as consumer demand for the genre and advertiser interest grows. Radio research firm Arbitron (ARB) notes that stations that switched to the all-holiday format saw ratings climb an average 91% last holiday season and total listenership grow by an average 66%.
