How does a radio prioritize two identical frequencies from two different stations?


Driving into work today, with high dense cloud cover, my preferred radio station was cut in by another radio station of the same frequency. I recognize the cloud cover acted as a dish, and I typically get static through that particular stretch of road, but what makes my radio decide what frequency is dominant of the two? What would be the effect of being in an intersection of multiple stations?

The strength of the signal as it hits your recieve antenna. One of the broadcast stations could be closer to you than the other, possibly resulting in a stonger signal (assuming they are pumping their respective signals out at the same power).
