  Frequency modulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
FM is also used at intermediate frequencies by most analog VCR systems, including VHS, to record the luminance (fl and white) portion of the video signal.
FM is the only feasible method of recording to and retrieving from magnetic tape without extreme distortion, as video signals have a very large range of frequency components -- from a few hertz to several megahertz.
FM receivers inherently exhibit a phenomenon called capture, where the tuner is able to clearly receive the stronger of two stations being broadcast on the same frequency.

 FM broadcasting - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
FM radio is a broadcast technology invented by Edwin Howard Armstrong that uses frequency modulation to provide high-fidelity sound over broadcast radio.
FM radio is distributed primarily through broadcast reception of FM radio signals, although it is also possible to distribute FM signals via cable FM, either by using an adapter to plug analogue cable wires directly into an FM receiver, or through the use of television channel allocations on a digital cable service.
A stereo receiver will matrix the M and S signals to recover L and R: L=M+S and R=M−S. The M signal is transmitted as baseband audio in the range 50Hz to 15kHz.

In contrast, FM broadcast band signals are not usually bothered by signals from distant stations on the same frequency.
As you have already gathered, the factors affecting FM reception most, aside from the FM tuner are; (a) the type of antenna used, (b) its height above the ground, and (c) the location of the antenna in relation to surrounding obstructions.

The greater expense was to the radio stations themselves that had to rebuild their stations for the new FM radio band.
The move of the FM band, an organized campaign of misinformation by RCA (a company that competed with FM radio by focusing on AM radio and the emerging technology of television), and adverse rulings by the FCC, severely set back the development of FM radio.
However, FM radio did not recover from the setback until the upsurge in high fidelity equipment in the late 1950's.

FM modulation used in the 88 to 108MHz band takes a signal with frequency range ~50Hz to ~15kHz and modulates a carrier in the FM band with a modulation index of ~5.
When FM stereo was introduced it had to fit in the existing band and the system used is illustrated in the diagram below.
The information which can be used to produce the stereo signal is contained in the L + R and the L - R signals.

 Basics of Stereo Multiplexing for FM Transmission
As FM is designed to handle Audio from 20Hz to 15 KHz, this gives lots of room to put in the Audio spectrum twice over + even more information in one channel without infringing on the other channel.
As older FM Radios only looked at the 0-15KHz part of the incoming FM signal, it was a straightforward decision that the lower part of the Stereo MPX should contain the sum of the Left and Right channels i.e.
A Stereo transmitter has to transmit various parts of the MPX signal and has to be set such that it does not over-modulate on the sum of all the MPX signal.
