Link. John Rudoff, M. D. says: I lived near Philadelphia from about age 12--20, leaving the area only to go to Syracuse University. About 1961 or 1962, about age 15 or so, I began to listen to folk music, which was far more congenial to me than mainstream radio music. There were a few coffeehouses in the area--the Gilded Cage, the Second Fret, and The Main Point. I also saw an occasional concert in the area, including a stunning concert by the young Joan Baez who was joined onstage by an unknown named Bob Dylan.
