Rader began playing trumpet at age five and was taught by his father.[1] He studied at Sam Houston State Teachers College and served in the Navy in the 1950s as a member of the band, then played and arranged for Woody Herman (1959–61), Maynard Ferguson (1961–63), and Count Basie (1963–64), Louie Bellson, Harry James, Terry Gibbs, Frank Foster, Henry Mancini, Les Brown (1967–72), and Stan Kenton.[1]

He toured with Della Reese, Sarah Vaughn, Andy Williams, Percy Faith, Diana Ross, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lewis (intermittently for 28 years), and Bob Hope (intermittently for 28 years with five tours of wartime Vietnam).[2]

He assembled a quintet in Los Angeles in 1972 and continued working with West Coast jazz musicians, including Lanny Morgan, Lew Tabackin, and Toshiko Akiyoshi.[1] He recorded as a leader and worked in music education for many years, including in Australia in the 1980s.[1]
