NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-

This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, and Sputnik Radio.
From GERMANY- Last weekend more than 4000 migrants were rescued from boats heading to Europe in the Mediterranean Sea. Ukrainian President Poroshenko appointed the former Georgian President as Governor of the Odessa region. Intense fighting erupted in eastern Ukraine. The German Foreign Minister went to Israel and then Gaza to try and negotiate talks and see the level of destruction in Gaza. Greece and its international creditors tried to work out a deal on debt payments and cash loans, but at press time for this show no agreement had been reached.
From CUBA- The drought in Cuba continues, with Civil Defense stepping into action. Nobel Peace Prize winner Rigoberto Menchu will visit the Amazon region of Ecuador where Chevron Texaco explorations have caused permanent ecological damage. Venezuelan President Maduro identified the mastermind of the assassination of a young political figure last fall as an ally of former Colombian President Uribe. An eighth Congressional candidate in upcoming elections in Mexico has been assassinated- 42 electoral candidates across the country have been attacked in recent weeks. A trial has begun in Colombia against the former Intelligence Chief for the assassination of a left leaning Presidential candidate 25 years ago. In Pakistan, a new US targeted assassination by drone killed at least 4 people.
From JAPAN- The operator of the Fukushima nuclear power plant has been censured for failing to admit the severity of recent radioactive leaks, the most serious leaks since monitoring began. Japan's fisheries minister hopes to force S Korea through the WTO to cease banning the import of seafood caught in the areas contaminated by Fukushima radiation leaks. The US government announced that sites used in the Manhattan Project, located in New Mexico, Washington, and Tennessee, will become a national historical park- the mayors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki are asking the US to show the precise damage caused by the atomic bombings in 1945.
From RUSSIA- An interview with Daniel Ellsberg, the Pentagon Papers whistleblower. He discusses how the Senate used information revealed by Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning to allow the Patriot Act to expire.

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.
TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via < >

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)
