This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Spanish National Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle and Radio Havana Cuba.
From CHINA- China has lowered its GDP goal for this year, the lowest since 2005. A Chinese Army General suggests that the country should not give up on asserting itself in Asia. Tribal and political leaders in eastern Libya have declared the region autonomous. China has reiterated its views on the Syrian issue. Russia accused Libya of training Syrian rebels to overthrow Assad. China's President congratulated Vladimir Putin on his Presidential victory in Russia.
From SPAIN- First a press review on Putin's election as President of Russia. Then an analysis of the fairness of the election, Putin's viewpoint on the West, where his support comes from.
From JAPAN- Russian police detained 600 citizens protesting Putin's Presidential election. 4 solar power plants are to be built by a Japanese mobile phone carrier. A group of shareholders is suing TEPCO executives for $68 billion for damages over the Fukushima nuclear disaster. At the one year anniversary of the Fukushima catastrophe the Japanese government is planning public relations to silence overseas rumors about radiation contamination.
From GERMANY- A report on the lessons learned from Fukushima, focusing on how European nations have reacted to the radiation release and changed the course on their own nuclear development.
From CUBA- In Santiago de Chile, workers went to strike to join the citizens protesting energy development in Patagonia. Peru and Colombia have agreed to speed up the elimination of anti-personnel mines in their region. Drug cartel violence in Mexico has caused the forced movement of people in at least 10 states. Central American leaders are meeting in Honduras and discussing the decriminalization of drugs to counter cartel violence. The White House moved the upcoming G-8 summit from Chicago to Camp David to avoid huge protests planned for May.
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.
NEW TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (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.(PDST)
NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://

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)
