Shelley Segal "The Dad Song"

Friend of Camels With Hammers Shelley Segal put up a song for her father on Father’s Day.

Last week, in the wee hours of Friday morning in the US, but in the late afternoon in Australia, I interviewed Shelley. Her album, which does not include the song above is An Atheist Album.

And in case you’ve yet read it and are interested, here is my paean to my own father, written on his birthday in 2009.
