Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (May 25) is up at the website http://www.outfarpress.com/shortwave.shtml in 3 forms- (new) HIGHEST QUALITY (128kb)(27MB), broadcast quality (16MB), and quickdownload or streaming form (6MB) (28:59) Links at page bottom
(If you have access to Audioport there is a highest 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 Spanish National Radio, China Radio International, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From SPAIN- Teachers and students across Spain staged a strike this week, to protest government cuts. Quebec and Chile saw huge educational demonstrations as well. Unemployment rates among young people continues to rise globally. Last weekend in Italy protest candidates were elected in several key cities. The US and Pakistan had a row over reopening military supply routes to Afghanistan.
From CHINA- North Korea now says that the failed satellite launch was never intended as a nuclear weapons test. China was angered by a US Defense Department report questioning the defensive nature of China's military development. While the UK does not use the Euro, the Greek debt crisis seriously effects them, and a Greek withdrawal from the Eurozone would have many consequences for the British pound.
From GERMANY- More on the potential consequences of a Greek withdrawal from the Eurozone- would this begin an unraveling of the entire economic body, and what would it look like?
From CUBA- Brazil is speculating on the potential outcomes of the upcoming Rio Plus 20 Conference On Sustainable Development. A former Colombian Senator says that the destabilization along the border with Venezuela is a defense strategy set up by the former President Uribe.
From RUSSIA- At the NATO summit, leaders reaffirmed their commitment to ending the war in Afghanistan by 2014. However, many think that this will just be a rebranding of the war, since US and NATO armies will remain in the country.
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 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.
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 < 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)
NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://radio.indymedia.org/en/podcast?keys=shortwave++

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)
