Jam On is a Jam Bands radio station on Sirius Satellite Radio channel 29[1] (previously 81), XM Satellite Radio channel 29[2] (previously 56) and Dish Network channel 6081. It has featured basketball player Bill Walton hosting a Grateful Dead show, hippie icon Wavy Gravy, and pedal steel player Buddy Cage as a DJ. It was formed in 2003 by Sirius VP Joel Salkowitz and programmer Lenny Bloch. The original DJ's were Jonathan Schwartz, Stef Scamardo, and Adam Foley.

By fall 2010, Sirius XM moved Jam On to channel 81 on the Sirius side to make room for Pearl Jam Radio on channel 17. However, Sirius tuners still list channel 81 under the old Cinemagic name, although from 2009-2010, that was The Strobe on Sirius 81.
