Chubby Parker is a pseudonym of Frederick R. Parker. In the 1920’s, for listeners of Chicago-based radio station WLS, Chubby Parker & His Old Time Banjo was a very popular act, entertaining the audience with his repertoire of funny songs, country songs and “negro” songs. Singing, strumming his five-string banjo, blowing his harmonica, whistling a bit, he was a much loved figure before going to oblivion in the depression era, like many others.

His most enduring song is undoubtedly 'King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki-Me-O' (aka 'Froggy Went A-Courtin'), which was selected by musicologist Harry Smith for his Smithsonian Anthology Of American Folk Music, and was covered by, among others, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds.
