when i turn the volume on i hear all this static and eerie noise when the cords are connected.

but its blank when the cords arent connected.

how do i stop my guitar from picking up all these signals and noises?

when i pick my guitar it doesnt even go through the amp, i just hear it from the guitar.

sounds like a bad cable to me, try using a different one.

Coincidence? I think not.

but its picking up like radio signals, i can hear people talking on my amp.

Improper grounding? Feedback from playing too close to amp, nearby television, nearby cellphone, etc?
I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are bruises from fighting. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Dodgy cable, if it goes away when you unplug it. try each cable and just your bass and amp in turn to see if one or all are dodgy. I'm sure its something to do with the ground on the cables, but don't quote me on that.

try also moving yourself and amp somewhere else in the house to see if it still does it.

then, invest in decent cables

same here.

TS, try moving away from your amp and see if it goes away when you move away. If not, try a new cable.
