The inspiration for the songs in this book came when it was noted that Jim Neiger, N6TJ, is now 64 years old. This motivated Doug Grant, K1DG, to write the parody of the Beatles’ “When I’m Sixty-Four” and dedicate it to Jim. Doug shared his work with a few of his friends including fellow WRTC2002 competitor Andy Blank, N2NT, and Referee Ward Silver, N0AX. They added a few songs of their own, and in a few short days, the works you read here emerged. Cover art was contributed by Phil Koch, K3UA.

We hope you enjoy reading/singing them as much as we enjoyed writing them. It will help to be a Beatles fan.

Songs under consideration for the next collection:

Maxwell’s Silver Paddle; She Came in through the Packet Window; While my MP gently weeps; Oh-Jay-Three, Oh-Jay-Four (Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da); All you need is Mults; Calling CQ Forever

Thanks for the permission to publish this songbook online: K1DG, N2NT, N0AX, and K3UA.
