Ah, yes! Fond memories from long bygone Amateur Radio days.  I and
another Ham used a swinging choke in a pi-network for a 2KW RF (tube)
amplifier we built many, many moons ago.  (We even wound the power
transformer, as a learning experience).  But I never learnt the song.

But I can still recite 
"Bad boys r... o... y... g... b... v... gives willingly" -:)
Oh, the stuff that sticks in one's brain!
