Why are FM radio stations organized the way they are?

Why are (FM) radio stations organized the way they are? I don't listen to the radio much, but after spending some time at home recently, I remember an observation I made as a kid: classical/jazz and college stations are sub-92, pop/hip-hop/etc. are 92-102, and oldies/classic/hard rock are 102+. I've definitely seen exceptions, especially in larger cities, but this split does seem pretty accurate overall. Is there a reason for it?
