Saratoga Springs, also known as simply Saratoga, is a city in Saratoga County, New York, United States. The population was 26,186 at the 2000 census. The name reflects the presence of mineral springs in the area. While the word "Saratoga" is known to be a corruption of a Native American place name, authorities disagree on what the exact word was, and hence what it meant. The city is near the center of Saratoga County in upstate New York.

And then the rains came. The vid was rescued; my camera was destroyed during the downpour. Did I get my ticket for the show? Of course! Over-scalped at 80 bucks? Definitely! How 'bout that Ocelot, huh?

If you grew up listening to WABC musicradio 77 in the 1960's, you probably listened to their legendary morning DJ, Herb Oscar Anderson. We caught up with HOA at the Saratoga Polo Club, in Saratoga Springs, New York. He had been invited to entertain guests after the polo match. Herb sang his famous theme song, "Hello Again" along with some other favorites. It was just wonderful to see him, and relive some great memories. This video was shot on 8/24/2008.
