Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (April 1) is up at the website
http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml in both broadcast quality (15.1MB) 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 {35MB} http://www.audioport.org/index.php?op=producer-info&uid=904&nav=&)

This week's show features stories from China Radio International, NHK Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and The Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- Chinese President Hu Jintao questions the coalition actions in Libya. The US and UK have a new interpretation of the UN resolution that they believe justifies giving arms to Libyan rebels. More than a quarter million people marched against British austerity measures. S Korean activists staged a demonstration on the anniversary of Three Mile Island nuclear power plant accident
From JAPAN- The IAEA tested radiation levels around the Fukushima nuclear plant and suggested a larger area be evacuated. The radiation levels in seawater near the plant continues to rise. Japan has asked its trade partners to not impose "unfair" trade bans on food products. Research has revealed that some of the March 11th tsunami waves were 30 meters high. The Plutonium found in the ground indicate that nuclear fuel rods have partially melted. Barack Obama has reiterated his support for more US nuclear power plants.
From GERMANY- An update on the shut down of 7 nuclear power plants in Germany. The UK has expelled 5 Libyan diplomats and is considering future actions in Libya.
From CUBA- A Viewpoint on the reported use of depleted uranium weapons by the US military in Libya.
From RUSSIA- A review of an article from the Christian Science Monitor delineating 14 serious defects in US nuclear power plants between 2009 and 2010.

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 evening at 6:30pm (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.(PST)
NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://radio.indymedia.org/en/podcast?keys=shortwave++
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)
