A weekly 30 minute review of news and opinion, recorded from a shortwave radio and the internet. With times, frequencies, and websites for listening at home. 2 files- broadcast and slow-modem streaming. Free to rebroadcast. China, Spain, Germany, Cuba, and Russia.
Dear Radio Friend, 
            The latest Shortwave Report (February 11) is up at the website in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (4.9MB) (28:59)
   (NEW! If you have access to there is a higher quality version posted up there {26.7MB}

     This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and The Voice of Russia.
   From CHINA- Cambodian and Thai military forces are fighting over a disputed border temple. The drought in Northern China continues with the wheat crop in peril. The Arctic Sea ice is at its lowest surface area since monitoring began. Chile is experiencing a severe drought. Haiti has allowed a passport for former President Aristide. Italian Prime Minister Berlusconi denies paying for sex with a 17 year old, an act which may end his reign. Julian Assange has demanded that Swedish prosecutor come to the UK before he goes to Sweden.
    From SPAIN- Spain's banned political party Batasuna has reemerged, rejecting the violence used by Basque separatists ETA. Oil-rich South Sudan is the newest nation on the African continent. Tunisia has suspended activities of the former ruling party to prevent further unrest.
   From GERMANY-  As I write this Hosni Mubarak is telling the crowds in Cairo that some powers will go to Omar Suleiman- clearly there are more demonstrations ahead. Here is a report from Wednesday on the new Vice-President Suleiman. Private Bradley Manning is being held in a maximum security military prison for allegedly releasing confidential material to Wikileaks- there are calls in London to intervene on his behalf.
   From CUBA- Wikileak cables show that Omar Suleiman has been Israel's choice to lead Egypt for some time. George W Bush had to cancel a trip to Switzerland to avoid being arrested for war crimes. Hillary Clinton argued in Mexico that the US cannot legalize drugs because there is too much money in it. FARC rebels in Colombia have begun releasing prisoners. The World Social Forum began Sunday in Senegal.
    From RUSSIA-  France is currently chairing the G20, and preparing a full-scale reform of the world financial system.
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -
I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at

  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 evening at 6:30pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via <>
There are several other streams that work better- <>Freak Radio Santa Cruz  now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am.(PST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed:// > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts) 
Check out the amazing streams at <
And Radio For Peace International at <

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)
