    As either observer or participant, radio deejay and political activist, Richard E. Stamz witnessed every significant period in the history of blues and jazz in the last century. Dominating the airwaves with his radio show "Open the Door, Richard" on WGES in Chicago, Stamz cultivated friendships with countless music legends, including Willie Dixon, Sonny Boy Williamson, Little Walter, Howlin' Wolf, Memphis Slim, and Leonard Chess. "Give 'Em Soul, Richard!" surrounds Stamz's memories of race records, juke joints, and political action in Chicago's Englewood neighbourhood with insights on the larger historical trends that were unfolding around him in radio and American history.
