    The random article for Monday, 28 September 2020 is Mater Dei Catholic High School (Chula Vista, California).

The original campus was located in South San Diego, near the intersection of Coronado Avenue and Thermal Street. Across from Marian Catholic was the parochial K-8 school, Saint Charles Catholic School. The new campus is located in East Chula Vista, in close proximity to Otay Ranch Town Center and Olympian High School.

    Frank D. Waldron

    Frank D. Waldron

    Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

    The random article for Saturday, 26 September 2020 is Frank D. Waldron.

    Frank D. Waldron (1890-1955) was an American jazz cornetist, alto saxophonist, trumpeter, composer, bandleader, and music teacher who lived in Seattle, Washington. He was born in San Francisco, California in 1890 and eventually moved to the Pacific Northwest by the beginning of World War I. When he initially moved to Washington, he began his performance career at Camp Lewis—known as Fort Lewis today—playing dance music at the local pavilion attended by soldiers and company. By 1915, he joined the Wang Doodle Orchestra, playing alongside pianist Coty Jones. Waldron and the Wang Doodle Orchestra became notable playing in underground clubs and speakeasies, typical of Prohibition-era jazz music. Following his time with the Wang Doodle Orchestra, he joined the Odean Jazz Orchestra. Later, the Odean Jazz Orchestra would be one of very few black bands to perform at Nanking Café in downtown Seattle which rarely incorporated the integration of black musicians in the night scene. In 1919 Waldron opened The Waldron School of Trumpet and Saxophone where he taught students such as Buddy Catlett and Quincy Jones. Waldron being an expert in his field, taught his pupils the basics of embouchure and phrasing, sight-reading, tonguing, furthermore even improvisation and ear-training. These specialized techniques were staple artistic skill for musicians to achieve before moving forward in their musical endeavors.

    While at this time Seattle operated largely outside of the radar of the large East coast jazz record labels, Waldron self-published his own records. This included Frank D. Waldron Syncopated Classic, The Kaiser's Got the Blues (Since Uncle Sam Stepped In), and Valse Queen Ann. His publication, Frank D. Waldron Syncopated Classic was a music instructional book for piano and alto saxophone that featured techniques to inspire and educate other musicians. He wrote 9 compositions for this publication which serve as a symbol of the musical mastery of jazz musicians such as himself and in the Seattle area brought to the jazz scene. One of his earlier compositions, The Kaiser's Got the Blues (Since Uncle Sam Stepped In) was a patriotic song in response to World War I published in 1918. This composition is an example of Frank D. Waldron's musical intelligence for detail and impeccable technique for song writing during the early 20th century Jazz influence.

    Frank D. Waldron died in Seattle, Washington in 1955 at the age of 65.

    River Cam (Somerset)

    River Cam (Somerset)

    Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.

    The random article for Thursday, 24 September 2020 is River Cam (Somerset).

    The River Cam is a tributary of the River Yeo in the south of Somerset, England.

    The Cam rises east of Yarlington (51°00′06″N 2°38′11″W). It flows south west past North Cadbury, Sparkford, Queen Camel and West Camel, and joins the Yeo near Yeovilton (51°00′06″N 2°38′11″W). Other tributaries include the stream through Blackford and Compton Pauncefoot and benefited from works in the 1980s to the riverbanks in Blackford to help keep the water moving. Flooding in Blackford is rarer than previously, as a result. This tributary stream has its headwaters in the hills around Blackford and Compton Pauncefoot together with a number of springs. The main waters come from three primary sources: Maperton, Quarry Hill and Sigwells Hill. The first two combine in Blackford around the Crossroads/Hollow and further springs contribute at several points all the way through both villages. The river then travels under the A303 to join the Yarlington headwaters.

    The Cam flows onto the Royal Naval Station at Yeovilton where it joins the Yeo, which in turn flows west to the south of Yeovilton and through the town of Ilchester. The river course continues to the west and at Langport becomes the River Parrett.

    In 2009 the river burst its banks at West Camel following flash flooding.
