Its our first Post-Oscar show, as Mikey & d$ are joined in-studio again by Jacob "Pinky" Pinkerton, movie aficionado and all around pleasant young man.

A great game of Rotten Tomatoes commences, with Mikey trying to keep his streak going... he also brings some great great music with a band called Kopecky Family Bans... while d$ cleanses our pallet with something truly classic... then leads into a wonderful Buried Treasure featuring the most famous R&B singer to ever come out of Trinidad.  That's a true statement.

There's an Oscar recap... Gary Busey returns... and leading into a new segment, The Big Three gives us Mikey & d$'s favorite wrestling superstars of all time... Sting!  Triple H!  JYD!  Piper!  DiBiase!  and many more!
