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

This week's show features stories from Sputnik Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, and China Radio International.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Elena Palisano from Greenpeace about Arctic drilling by Shell Oil Company.
From GERMANY- Several reports on the Mediterranean immigration conflicts in Europe- there was no real resolution on the crisis from talks in Luxembourg. Talks between Greece, the European Commission, and debtors likewise continued in a circular motion- the threat of Greece leaving the EU and citizens undergoing catastrophic financial collapse looms large. The NYT reported that the US military is planning on sending weapons and war equipment to the Baltic states for future US troop use. Then Russian President Putin announced plans to deploy more nuclear missiles, which was condemned by NATO.
From CUBA- Peru has seen huge public protests against the President, largely caused by very low salaries. A Mexican judge seeking asylum in the US says the government forces did know what was happening to the 43 disappeared students in Guerrero.
From JAPAN- Protests were held in Tokyo against the national security bills being discussed by the government. An Insight on the perilous roadmap for decommissioning the Fukushima nuclear reactors, which is hoped to be completed in 30-40 years. A Swedish think tank made an assessment of the 15,850 known nuclear warheads on the planet. Hong Kong lawmakers rejected a Beijing backed election reform bill, which led to a long protest occupation last year.
From CHINA- China has urged Japan to take actions to gain the trust of its Asian neighbors. China and Australia signed a free trade agreement. North Korea test fired a new type of anti-ship rocket. China is planning to construct lighthouses and naval navigation stations in the South China Sea.

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)
