By Nancy Flores

About 80 Austin women made Tejano music history when they participated in a 1972 photo shoot at the Austin City Coliseum. Find out about that night in my story about “Las Viejas de Little Joe and the Latinaires by La Familia.” If you or someone you know were featured in that album cover, share your story with us for an upcoming follow-up article.

We’ve already heard many memories about how hot the Coliseum was, how women spent hours fixing their hair before a dance and how many men were returning from Vietnam at the time. So if you have a memory you’d like to share about the day of the photo shoot, let me know at or in the comments section here.

And check out this album cover interactive for some pop-up fun facts:
