Trivia Minute Update: April 26, 2017

We’ll start off with a trivia question: Tanzania was formed from the merger of what two countries?

We’ll have the answer later in the show.

Today is World Intellectual Property Day.

It’s unofficially Administrative Professionals Day, Audubon Day and Hug an Australian Day.

It’s the birthday of architect I.M. Pei, who is 100; actress Carol Burnett, who is 84; and actor Jet Li, who is 54.

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

This week in 1990, the top song in the U.S. was “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor.

The No. 1 movie was “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” while the novel “September” by Rosmunde Pilcher topped the New York Times Bestsellers list.

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.
