I was playing today,upstairs in the room with all my stuff in it.One other person in my house,my sister who was downstairs,no TV turned on.

I stop to give my hands a rest (guitar cramp,i get it a lot after long sessions),and i hear voices...The phone hadnt rung,the TV wasnt on,i was wondering where it was coming from,but then i heard the jingle from a radio station aired not very far from me...It was coming through my amp lol.

I didnt even think it could be possible...no transistor,no ariel etc...

Does this happen to anybody else?

His amp doesn't believe in what should be coming out of it, so it chose to play the radio instead. TS' amp is dissing him.

I wasnt,serious,i think its happened before,i hear random songs every so often,the one i heard a few weeks ago was the sound of music lol.

But i only figured out where it was coming from today lol.

It happened to me with my magical MG. It kept picking up French radio stations, which was really weird. It doesn't happen with my valve amps though.

actually, it's probably because your cable is looping somewhere or it's one of those coiled ones. looping it makes it way more conductive to radioactivity.
damn i'm smart.

FINALLY! Somebody else like me.

Whenever i leave my amp on idle, i pick up some music. Sounds like Jazz. I told my family and they thought i was crazy.

Yes, I pick up jazz music on my amp. You're not alone.

Edit: or pups. w/e.

the problem is the reverb tube will somtimes pick up strong radio waves if they are the right frequency, usualy the only afective solution is to turn of the reverb(if u can), or you could just be tripping out.

Never had this problem with an amp. I did have this problem with my multi-effects pedal when I turned it's distortion on mode 1.

This happened on my friend's wah pedal, but I haven't seen it on an amp. (Some baseball announcer just started talking when he plugged in his pedal.)
