Michael Ann Coker and Margaret Moser move fast, and they're relentless. In less than a year working together, they formed Texas Legacy Music to honor musical heroes of the past and hosted two awards shows (at Saluté International Bar and Floore's Country Store) to recognize industry professionals. Now they've teamed up again to create the South Texas Popular Culture Center with a mission statement to "collect, document, exhibit, preserve, and interpret South Texas and music-related art and history."

"I have to consider myself so lucky to have met [Coker]," said Moser. "It seems like we're kind of almost related because the connections between us go so far back."

For years, they were linked in many ways and they didn't even know it. They had the same passions, attended the same music events, and collected historical musical information. It was at a meeting of music enthusiasts that Moser saw Coker pulling out a binder full of Moser stories written for the Austin Chronicle and other sources.

"Whoever this woman is that's sitting across from me that I don't know, that's the kind of woman I want to work with. Really," said Moser. "Anybody who's looking at what [I do] in that context, to be that serious about it, has got to be worth working with."

Equally enamored, Coker said of Moser: "She has such good taste."
