Phish fans are finally getting what they want: After a limited-edition Phish Radio test run on SiriusXM last summer, Phish Radio is back… And this time, it’s permanent – a blessing from Icculus and the Phish powers that be for all of us who Read The Book. SiriusXM is turning Channel 29 – the former home of JamOn – into a full time, 24/7 Phish channel. For all the non-Phish fans out there that still need their Umphreys and Disco Biscuits fix, JamOn will still live on, now found on channel 716, with streaming beginning on Friday, June 14.
The programing will include the following, according to a press release from SiriusXM
Phish Radio will play music from the band’s extensive career, including their vast catalog of live songs, studio tracks, and musical influences. Listeners will also hear recurring shows hosted by band members, live broadcasts from their 2019 tour as well as exclusive interviews and commentary from each band member.
“My bandmates and I are thrilled to have a home at SiriusXM where Phish fans can hear music from over three decades of us making music together,” said Page McConnell. “We’re excited to make Phish Radio an extension of who we are as a band and a welcome home for fans old and new.”
I was a HUGE fan of Ask Trey and Jon Fishman’s delightfully weird Errant Path show last year. It explained the origins of songs like Halley’s Comet and I Didn’t Know in a really fun way. Trey also used the platform to answer the world’s most important Phish question:
I’m also excited for the programming to evolve accordingly.
Wishful thinking, but my highest hopes is that there’s a Page McConnell show reviewing sandwiches and shirts by the end of the year.
Because, as the saying goes, “when Page stands up, we get down.”
The news of Phish Radio (Channel 29) coincides with Phish’s Friday and Sunday performances at Bonnaroo this weekend.

The Phish sets will broadcast live on the new SiriusXM Phish channel, Channel 29, on Friday around 11pm CT and Sunday around 8:30pm CT.
