Scott Magee/DJ Cooky Parker: Coffeeshop Conversations #136 / They're the same guy

By TOM D'ANTONI // He's a drummer and band leader as Scott Magee. He's a Soul/R&B DJ in clubs and on KMHD as Cooky Parker. 

Welcome back to World Cup Coffee and Tea at NW 18th and Glisan for another Coffeeshop Conversation.

Today I’ve got drummer Scott Magee and DJ Cooky Parker here with me. Ok, they’re the same person.

Scott has played with a lot of Portland bands including Y La Bamba and Loch Lomond, and he leads the Ural Thomas band.

Cooky Parker (and wait till you hear how he got that name) is a DJ around town specializing in vintage Soul and R&B and who is host of KMHD’s “Friday Flashback” 6-8pm. That’s back to back with my show “I Like It Like That” from 8-10.

He lived in New Orleans for ten years, where he got his start on drums. There may be no better place on earth to get your start on drums.

Meet Scott and Cooky.
