It is with heavy hearts that we inform you that Micaela “Chata”Gutierrez joined her ancestors Tuesday morning, December 17, after her 5-year battle with cancer. Chata has been with KPOO since the beginning, when she was only 18 years old. She was a wonderful DJ and an even more wonderful person.

On Saturday, December 21, during what would have been her show, people came to the station to pay tribute to their friend. Their words spoke more eloquently than we ever could.
