Richard Nader, the concert promoter who founded "The Rock and Roll Revival Spectacular," A disc jockey and talent scout, Nader returned from military service in Korea with the idea of putting together concerts that celebrated the music of the '50s and '60s. His first "Rock and Roll Revival," featuring Chuck Berry, Bill Haley and His Comets, the Platters, the Coasters, and the Shirelles, sold out at Madison Square Garden on Oct. 18, 1969. That success created a boom of interest in that era throughout pop culture.
Nader's concerts became so popular they spawned the feature film "Let the Good Times Roll" in 1973, in which he appeared, creating waves of nostalgia that reignited the careers of rock and roll pioneers, doo-wop groups and soul singers, as well as set the stage for late-'50s, early-'60s-loving projects such as "Happy Days" and "American Graffiti."
