Our morning DJ's were just discussing this.  :)

You must apply to the FCC.  Unfortunately, the bands are quite full.  There are areas where no frequencies are available that won't interfere with existing stations.  The few that come open are heavily competed for, and expansion is unlikely.

Here's a link to the FCC's info.
