The Academy Awards are only two days away and Black Sheep has a couple of things to help make your Oscar day one to remember! The first is my annual playlist of music from the movies of the last year. It’s an eclectic mix that you can pop on for the hour or so leading up to the Oscars themselves to help drown out the voice of Joan Rivers on the red carpet! I hope you like it.
