LOOKOUT FM is a new independent FM radio network in Los Angeles. Broadcasting in Burbank on 96.7FM and Hollywood on 99.1FM, LOOKOUT FM is an observatory: Curated audio programming with a wide outlook and varied perspectives on the world expressed through music, documentaries, lectures, poetry, and discussion. Partnered with voices from the indigenous community, the music community, the arts community, and the academic community, LOOKOUT FM offers long-term perspectives on that which lasts: nature, and the arts. For the LAF Summer Exhibition, artist and composer Cameron Stallones adapts Viva Padilla’s potent psycho-geographical poem for radio with field recordings and original music.
