1979 Roger Voudouris – Radio Dream

Radio Dream is the second album from Sacramento, California rocker Roger Voudouris. Released in 1979, this album became a major breakthrough for the singer-songwriter/guitarist. Whereas his self-titled previous album had more hints of progressive rock, Radio Dream found Voudouris simplifying his approach slightly, collaborating with producer Michael Omartian and channeling more of an accessible “pop” sensibility. The lead-off track, “Get Used to It” became a big hit on the pop charts, just missing the top 20. The tune would become Voudouris’ only charting single. The rest of the album features a combination of disco-infused hard rock and mellow ballads, finishing with a slight nod toward his progressive rock past with “Reprise.”

The album peaked at #171 on the album charts, and it remains his most successful album
