So, like, would you hear Kampfar on a modern rock station there?
In my area FM radio was the last place to find great music. I mentioned this before but there used to be this insanely awesome show called Brave New Waves (from Montreal I believe) on my FM dial. Came on at midnight and didn't atop until 4AM. Discovered SOOOOO much interesting, diverse and original music there. On any given night you could hear indie rock (when "indie" used to mean something), noise, ambient, dub, post-rock, punk, shoegaze, even the odd metal track here and there. So sad it's no more.
