Trivia Minute Update: April 25, 2017

We’ll start off with a trivia question: What is the name of the canal and lock system that connects the North American Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean?

We’ll have the answer in the show.

Today is World Malaria Day, Flag Day in Swaziland, and Liberation Day in Italy.

It’s unofficially National Plumber’s Day, National Telephone Day, and Hairstylists Appreciation Day.

It’s the birthday of journalist Edward R. Murrow, who was born in 1908; singer Ella Fitzgerald, who was born in 1917; and actor Al Pacino, who is 77.

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

This week in 1977 U.S. was “Southern Nights” by Glen Campbell.

The No. 1 movie was “Annie Hall,” while the novel “Oliver’s Story” by Erich Segal topped the New York Times Bestsellers list.

 

Now for our weekly question: What was Edward R. Murrow’s actual given name?

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 Friday’s episode.
