Default i kind of like Jam On now...

well im not really into jam bands, and I especially don't like Phish or Grateful Dead, who of course are the 2 most well-known jam bands, but I just decided to give the station a bit more of a chance, since I came around to liking Octane and Hair Nation.. and well, this one isn't bad either; I expected it to be non-stop Phish/Dead jams, but they just play any good rock with a jam-ish beat to it... They seem to also play a decent amount of jazz/funk jam bands, like Soulive/Medeski Martin & Wood/etc, those are the kinds I don't mind..

I dig the Dead, hate Phish. Luckily they don't play too much of the latter. And there are some great bands (some of which are local to my area, like Big Head Todd and the Monsters, The Samples....etc) that they do play. I wasn't huge in to Jam stuff growing up (I was a metalhead first and foremost) but I've since evolved.

I like Faction.

It's the only place I've heard my two current most favorite rock songs in a row:

Slipknot - Duality
Pennywise - Alien

Jam_On is also the reason I got Sirius instead of XM. I am a huge Dead fan and don't really care for Phish. Though every once in a while I will listen to Gone Phishin. I wish though they would take that hour and change the band around sometimes. Jam_On Rocks!

I'm just a casual fan of jam-bands. And I LOVE this stream. A friend of mine goes on a lot of business trips and gets XM in the car a lot and wasn't impressed with satellite radio. In one of my many rants, I mentioned that Sirius had a channel exclusive to Jam Bands (which he is a huge fan of) and he went nuts. The first band on when he heard Jam_On on my stereo was Hot Tuna.. He bought a unit the next week..

Jam_On is probably one of the most popular streams out there cuz there's absolutely NO WHERE you can get anything like it---and there never was.

They need to play more Rusted Root on this channel. Do they provide a list of past concerts that they are going to play on here in advance?

Add me to the list of "Jam_ON is the reason I chose SIRIUS."

Well, that and the fact that XM's rock stations look like crap.

I don't know what I would do it Sirius dropped Jam_ON.

There should be a nightly Dead show. Also I'm very impressed with the anti-Phish, pro-Dead sentiment on this forum. I find Phish juvenille and irritating. I really can't stand them. A whole channel devoted to the Dead would be amazing. Maybe broadcast from the future "Terrapin Station."

im impressed with the anti Phish sentiment on here too... I don't like the Dead either, I really can't tell the 2 apart honestly, but as long as lots dislike one of the 2

"juvenile and irritating", hah.. well I just find them to be more boring than watching a turtle...
