A weekly 30 minute review of news and opinion, recorded from a shortwave radio. With times and freqs for listening at home. 2 files- broadcast and slow-modem streaming. Free to rebroadcast. Netherlands, Spain, Cuba, and Russia.
Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (November 10) is up at the website
http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (3.3MB) (29:00)
This week's show features stories from Radio Netherlands, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From NETHERLANDS- A brief press review from Wednesday covering the US election results. Saddam Hussein received a death sentence this week, which was strongly rejected by EU member states- the questionable nature of the trial was also criticized. Then a press review concerning the Saddam verdict and a new study on murder rates in nations which believe in god and the devil. The Netherlands wants to ban the motorcycle club The Hells Angels. The government of Nepal and Maoist rebels have reached an agreement that could bring an end to the 10 year insurgency.
From SPAIN- 2 reports about continuing Israeli army attacks on Palestine, leaving scores of civilians dead- the US government had no comment while most nations condemned the attacks. Panama was elected to represent Latin America on the UN Security Council after Venezuela and Guatemala were deadlocked after weeks of voting. Daniel Ortega won the election in Nicaragua despite intense efforts by the US government to prevent his return to power. The Mexican parliament blocked President Fox's planned trip to Asia because of political upheaval at home. The UN General Assembly voted 183-4 calling on the US to end its trade embargo on Cuba.
From CUBA- In Venezuela stories are circulating of planned riots and a military coup to be staged the day after Hugo Chavez is reelected president on Dec 3. The Bush administration wants to prevent prisoners who have been tortured in secret prisons from talking to lawyers or the press.
From RUSSIA- A commentary on the continuing swing to leftist leaders in Latin America with the election of Ortega in Nicaragua. A commentary wondering if the real reason Saddam received the death penalty was to keep him from revealing US government involvement in Middle Eastern affairs during the 1980's.
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line at- http://www.campusprogress.org/soundvision/780/big-stories-shortwaves
I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at http://radio.mediageek.net
All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. It's free to rebroadcast, please notify me if you're airing it and haven't notified me in the last month, please mention the website if you only air a portion. If you just want to listen and have a slow connection, try the streaming version- lower sound quality but good enough and way easier if you don't have a high-speed internet connection. If streaming is a problem because of your slow connection, download the smaller file- it takes 20 minutes or less, and will play swell in any mp3 player application (RealPlayer, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
This program will be aired on Friday afternoon at 4:30pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via <http://www.kzyx.org >
There are several other streams that work better- < http://www.freakradio.org >Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am and Saturday at 11am(PDST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < http://www.radio4all.net > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)
Check out the amazing streams at < http://www.radicalradio.org >
And the Partytown streams are great and informative- <http://www.partytown.com/radio >
I hope you'll listen and air this if you're connected with a radio station. I am still wondering how to get financially compensated for the 25 hours I put into this program weekly- any ideas are appreciated. Any stations rebroadcasting this (or listeners) are welcome to donate for production costs. You can do so through the website. Many thanks to those that have donated! No Guilt! (maybe a little)

Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.
