I know a town with one NPR, one classic rock, one adult contemporary/full service (But that one is on AM) and three religious stations.

Our town is mainly into POP music or or classic rock, places like Chicago or St.  Louis have a variety of different stations.

Alaska (Well, the heavily populated parts of the state that is, like Anchorage and Fairbanks) has a lot of alt rock/active rock/hard rock stations.

I could imagine larger cities like New York or LA would have about every genre or type of station imaginable. Those types of cities have lots of culture.

Yeah, they do.  The stations also sounds much more professional in larger cities (IDs, audio processing quality, etc.)

Some of the broadcasters here can be morons.

They always good off and I once heard one crack a dirty joke when they thought they weren't on air.

I know exactly what you're describing! My area is serviced by two of probably the most unique NPR/public radio stations.  (KCAW-FM 104.7 of Sitka, AK and KFSK-FM 100.9 of Petersburg, AK in case you REALLY want to know the specifics).  KCAW has a few late-night, weekend music shows ("real" music on an NPR station I might add!) where the DJs are goofing off and I do indeed wonder "Do they realize the mic is on?".  Mostly laughing way too hard at some random stupid thing, I'm sure alcohol is involved LOL.

Sounds like you live in a fairly rural area too, with mom-and-pop type radio stations, just like here.

103.7 WDBR and 98.7 WNNS have had brawls with 101.9 the wolf and 104.5 WFMB about stealing radio hosts and announcers.

No but they are sometimes announced by the station or on the news.

Those morning-show personalities always annoy me LOL. 

The one neat thing about radio in a place like where I live is that the two public radio stations here air all sorts of stuff, not just 22 hours of prerecorded classical music and 2 hours of news...classic rock, alt rock, etc. as well.

I had a look at the FM band here in Weymouth southern UK and I found that 88 to 90 Megs radio 2 news and some rather old fashioned music from 1940s90.1 to 93 radio 3 classical music  93.1 to 94.5 fadio 4 newstalk 97 local comercial station 99.6 radio 1 rock and pop station 102.3 comercial from Bournemouth a town around 30 miles away. Finally 107.2 a charity and community station. On mediumwave my best DX SO far is the VOA oulet on sao Tome island central Africa on 1530 khz power of the tx there is 600 kilowatts.

I fabbed up a wacky antenna of multiple pieces of wire, some of it just wadded up, that actually pulls in a very weak FM signal here PERFECTLY!
