Sea-Tac to showcase Northwest music



SEATAC, Wash. (AP) — Baby got bags? Then you’re ready for a dose of Sir Mix-A-Lot and other Northwest artists at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.

The airport announced Tuesday a new initiative to promote the region’s musicians, including Quincy Jones, Pearl Jam, Ben Gibbard, Macklemore and Sir Mix-A-Lot. A number of those artists have recorded informational and safety announcements about Northwest music, the airport’s environmental practices and that there’s no smoking.

Their music will play on overhead speakers, and some of the video screens at Sea-Tac will feature segments on the artists.

Port of Seattle Commissioner John Creighton says it’s a great opportunity to introduce the 32 million travelers who pass through Sea-Tac every year to a big part of the region’s culture.
