Jesse Ransom, LIVE! (KPSU Phase I Episode 103)

Jesse Ransom is one of those rare people that you feel lucky to meet in your lifetime: a talented, funny, and genuine person who happens to write beautiful songs that are sometimes as poignant as their are hilarious. His band Mondale (named after the Jello Biafra’s “Names For Bands” spoken word piece) was one of my faves: a great mix of Punk, Surf and songs about girls. In the years since Jesse has kept his guitar muscles firmly flexed, which has culminated in me finally calling him and telling him to show up to play music on the air, on this most hallowed of holidays, 666. In the ensuing hour, Ransom busts out three originals, three covers, a lot of anecdotal humor about music in general, and a small taste of some of his big influences. This is a show I’ve been waiting to do for some time now, and it makes me happy to see it finally come to fruition. Please listen, won’t you?
