Dear Radio Friend,

This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- Chinese President Hu Jintao sent condolences to the people of Italy following an earthquake which killed at least 260 people- an earthquake last May in China killed over 70,000. Following a satellite launch by North Korea, the UN Security Council considered sanctions but took no action. In Prague, US President Obama called for reducing the global nuclear arsenal. Iranian President Ahmadinejad said he would welcome genuine talks with the US. The Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at former President Bush had his sentence reduced from 3 years to 1.
From NETHERLANDS- Radio Netherlands has eliminated shortwave broadcasts to North America. The decision is based on their surveys that find very few listeners in N America. If you ever listen to RN on shortwave, please let them know- by email to letters (at) rnw.nl or send them a letter to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, PO Box 222, 1200JG, Hilversum, The Netherlands.
There have been calls for a criminal investigation into the death of a non-protestor walking by police during the G20 protests in London. Rawanda marked the 15th anniversary of the start of a genocide that resulted in the death of 800,000 people in 100 days. Peru's Supreme Court has convicted former President Fujimori of human rights abuses and sentenced him to 25 years in prison.
From CUBA- The US administration is increasing the use of drones to carry out strikes in Pakistan. Cuban President Raul Castro met with the members of the US Congress Black caucus this week, led by Barbara Lee from California. The International Red Cross stated that US medical personnel were deeply involved in the CIA torture of prisoners held overseas. The top UN official in the Gaza Strip called on Israel to ease restrictions on the flow of goods into the territory, while the US delivered a massive shipment of arms to Israel. The White House is expecting Israeli President Netanyahu to allow the further expansion of settlement building in Palestinian territory.
From RUSSIA- 40 Palestinians were wounded in attacks by Israeli settlers in the West Bank. A review of the international response to last week's NATO summit in Strasbourg.

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.(PDST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://www.radio4all.net/responder.php/podcast/podcast.xml?series=outFarpress+presents > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)
Check out the amazing streams at < http://www.radicalradio.org >
And Radio For Peace International at < http://www.rfpi.org >

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)
