This week's show features stories from NHK Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and The Voice of Russia.
From JAPAN- French President Sarkozy has promised Libyan rebels more intense airstrikes against Gaddafi forces. The Japan earthquake toll continues to rise and 133,000 are still living in evacuation centers. Schoolchildren in Fukushima must not touch the soil because of radiation levels. A French company will build a facility to decontaminate radioactive water at the Fukushima plant. The Italian government has frozen nuclear power plant development due to public opinion. Indian police opened fire on anti-nuclear demonstrators.
From GERMANY- This month is the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant disaster- the containment structure is beginning to fail and vast dangers still exist at the site. The head of the Greek Bank does not want the nation's debt restructured. Britain, France and Italy are sending military advisers to Libya, while Germany opposes sending any NATO ground troops.
From CUBA- Greenpeace reports worldwide increases in radiation levels since the Fukushima nuclear disaster. Evidence has been released showing Britain discussing selling Iraq oil 5 months before the 2003 invasion. A Wikileaks release shows the Obama administration leading a campaign to sabotage a UN investigation into possible war crimes committed by Israel in the Gaza attack of 2008 and 2009. New figures were released about the casualties in the Egyptian revolt, and torture continues under the current authorities. Saudi Arabian authorities have arrested more than 160 peaceful dissidents since February, though the Western media is not mentioning it.
From RUSSIA- In Libya, the delivery of humanitarian aid may lead to the deployment of NATO ground troops, according to Phyllis Bennis from the Institute of Policy Studies.
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 (PDST) 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)
NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://
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)
