Trivia Minute Update: April 21, 2017

We’ll start off with a trivia question: What city hosted the most recent World’s Fair held in the United States?

We’ll have the answer later in the show.

Today is Civil Service Day in India, National Tree Planting Day in Kenya, and Day of Self-Government in Russia.

It’s unofficially Big Words Day, Kindergarten Day, and Keep Off the Grass Day.

It’s the birthday of author Charlotte Brontë, who was born in 1816; Queen Elizabeth II, who is 91; and actor Tony Danza, who is 66.

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

This week in 1971, the top song in the U.S. was “Joy to the World” by Three Dog Night.

The No. 1 movie was “Summer of ’42,” while the novel “QB VII” by Leon Uris topped the New York Times Bestsellers list.
