In honor of the one year anniversary of The Tom Shillue Show, the quintessential "Mean Dad" called in. Tom's father, Bill Shillue, surprised Tom to congratulate him for a year on the air, and still managed to poke some fun at him as well.

Mr. Shillue also gave a review of the book he inspired. Tom's dad say his son's memoir, "Mean Dads For A Better America" was a great piece of "creative authorship".
