Biography

Indiana born performer Frederick R. “Chubby” Parker was one of the first old time performers to become regionally famous through the power of radio. Parker was a fine singer with a high, clear voice and accompanied himself with deft tenor banjo playing to which he sometimes added harp rack harmonica. Much of his material was from an earlier era - some from the 19th century and included old-time comic songs, minstrel songs and some that sound like they originated in the British music hall. Like many successful Radio and phonograph stars of the mid to late 1920’s, he faded into obscurity during the great depression and very little is know about him after that period.
