The song “Only in America” was originally recorded  by the Drifters, and was written as a protest for social ills, which soon became  identified with liberty and the American Dream.  The song was re-recorded by Jay and The Americans in 1963. Remnants of the Drifters’ voices can be heard on the erased track.

Richard Nader,  founder of Richard Nader Entertainment, Inc. believed  that “Only in America” was a song that could capture the feelings of a nation.  Coming from a Lebanese background,  Nader was a first generation  American, born in Masontown,  PA. Having served in the U.S. Army, his pride for America
continued  to grow.  While stationed in North Korea, Nader was a disc jockey, and after his service his love of music propelled  him to start the Rock and Roll Revival in 1969 at Madison Square Garden.   In 2009, Nader passed away, but his legacy continues  through Richard Nader Entertainment, Inc. driven by the love of music.
