An All-New Abbreviated Thursday Show!

We’ll start off with a random trivia question: What university was founded on this date in 1868?

Today is World Meteorological Day, Day of Hungarian-Polish Friendship, and Day of the Sea in Bolivia.

It’s unofficially National Puppy Day, National Chip and Dip Day, and National Melba Toast Day.

It’s the birthday of actress Joan Crawford, who was born in 1905; film director Akira Kurosawa, who was born in 1910; and actress Keri Russell, who is 41.

Now, we’ll spin the wheel to pick a year at random.

This week in 1973, the top song in the U.S. was “Love Train” by The O’Jays.

The No. 1 movie was “Tom Sawyer,” while the novel “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” by Richard Bach topped the New York Times Bestsellers list.

Weekly question: How much per acre did the United States pay for Alaska in 1867?
