16 Apr 2009
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. China, Netherlands, Cuba, and Russia.
Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (April 17) is up at the website
http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (4.9MB) (28:59)
(NEW! If you have access to Audioport.org there is a higher quality version posted up there {26.7MB} http://www.audioport.org/index.php?op=producer-info&uid=904&nav=&)

This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- China and Taiwan are meeting to plan more cross straits relations. China's State Council has published a Human Rights Working Plan for the next two years. North Korea continues to react with anger to the UN Security Council condemnation of its satellite launch, ordering UN inspectors out of the country and restarting its nuclear program. Protests against the Prime Minister of Thailand led to the cancellation of the annual meeting of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, called the ASEAN summit. These demonstrations in Thailand turned into riots and some of the leaders have now surrendered to police. Iranian President Ahmadinejad says that his country is ready to build a new relationship with the US and the rest of the world. American journalist Roxana Saberi faced a one day trial in Iran for espionage, with a ruling expected within two weeks.
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.
The banks in Iceland collapsed last fall, creating much economic chaos. A new plan is proposed to set up global computer server farms there, since the region is cold and the electricity is plentiful and does not have any carbon footprint.
From CUBA- The US is boycotting a United Nations anti-racism conference to be held next week in Geneva because it questions Israel's attitude toward Palestine. Spanish prosecutors are moving forward in the case against Alberto Gonzalez, Douglas Feith and four other members of the Bush administration for authorizing torture at Guantanamo Bay Prison. Human trafficking continues to grow globally, with an estimated 2 million new victims each year, mostly women forced into prostitution.
From RUSSIA- Leading car producing countries are taking serious measures to keep their industries alive and helping citizens purchase new cars.

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)
