Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What kind of animal is your mascot? A: It is a hip platypus!!!
Q: Why a platypus? A: The Platypus is unique and has an unusual appearance. It is an egg-laying, duck-billed, beaver-tailed, otter-footed mammal. I felt the unusual music blend on the KRAZY Queue would be best represented by a platypus.
Q: Why the word "Queue"? What are you - French?? British?? A: Pronounced "Q" - it is a computing term for a series of files, which in this case, are song files to be played. By the way, the 'crazy' part is the songs vary wildly with respect to decade and genre. I use the spelling "Krazy" in part to be snarky, and to avoid being confused with a discount store located in South Los Angeles.
