Trivia Minute Update: May 3, 2017

We’ll start off with a question: Who was the owner of the Dodgers when they moved from Brooklyn to Los Angeles?

We’ll have the answer later in the show.

Today is World Press Freedom Day, Constitution Day in Poland, and Constitution Memorial Day in Japan.

It’s Public Radio Day, Wordsmith Day, and National Raspberry Popover Day.

It’s the birthday of singer and actor Bing Crosby, who was born in 1903; musician James Brown, who was born in 1933; and magician Doug Henning, who was born in 1947.

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

This week in 1981, the top song in the U.S. was “Morning Train” by Sheena Easton.

The No. 1 movie was “Caveman,” while the novel “Gorky Park” by Martin Cruz Smith 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 Friday’s episode.
