The first thing I would check is your speaker cable. Not to be reduntant (just trying to help), but are you aware that speaker and instrument cables are not the same? One should be shielded and the other one shouldn't. If this is not the problem, I'm ready to suggest other possible causes and solutions :)

i have the same amp cables i have always used, they are standard 1/4 inch. My amp will sometimes make a loud pop, i am not sure if it is related or not though.

I think one of JS songs have got a radio going on from the amp. Its a boy talking to an adult.

i checked all my stuff to try and find anything that produced hum or buzz and then i cheked the guitar and couldn't find anything different or wrong. I woke up and started playing and everthing was fine, no excess sound or radio stations coming though my cab.

It could also be poorly shielded cables. If they are, they more or less work as a gigantic radio antenna.
