Trivia Minute Update: May 4, 2017

We’ll start off with a question: What was the only crime gangster Al Capone was ever convicted of?

We’ll have the answer later in the show.

Today is International Firefighters Day, Youth Day in Fiji, and Restoration of Independence Day in Latvia.

It’s unofficially Star Wars Day, National Day of Prayer and National Orange Juice Day.

It’s the birthday of actress Audrey Hepburn, who was born in 1929; actor Will Arnett, who is 47; and golfer Rory McIlroy, who is 28.

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

This week in 1961, the top song in the U.S. was “Runaway” by Del Shannon.

The No. 1 movie was “101 Dalmatians,” while the novel “The Agony and the Ecstasy” by Irving Stone topped the New York Times Bestsellers list.

Weekly question: What is the official name of Amtrak?

Submit your answer at triviapeople.com/test and we’ll add the name of the person with the first correct answer to our winner’s wall … at triviapeople.com. We’ll have the correct answer on tomorrow’s episode.
