KCHJ (1010 AM "El Gallito 1010") is a radio station that broadcasts a ranchera and Norteño oldies format to the Bakersfield, California, area. Licensed to Delano, California, the station is currently owned by Lotus Communications. Its studios are located in southwest Bakersfield, while its transmitter is located northwest of Delano.


KCHJ was an outlet for Country Western music in the 1960s and 1970s. It was owned by Charles H. Johnes (pronounced Jones) hence the call letters KCHJ. It was a clear channel station so it had listeners over a large geographical area in Central California, as Mr. "Jones" was fond of pointing out on the air. He was one of the disk jockeys, using the name Gable Herman.

In the early 1960s the station featured an evening program known as "Freeway 99" (California's Freeway 99 ran right through the City of Delano). The Freeway 99 Show, hosted by Gable, featured music from the Easy Listening, Big Band, and Jazz genres such as Bert Kaempfert's "Wonderland by Night."

Charles was a pilot before he died. He died in an auto accident in 1968, and from 1968 until the station was sold in 1991, it was operated and managed by his widow, Jean Johnes. She died in 2009 at the age of 94. Tapes of his program were broadcast on the radio station for many years after he died.
