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, Sputnik Radio, China Radio International, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From GERMANY - The solar powered airplane, Solar Impulse 2, is making a second attempt to fly from Japan to Hawaii. Wikileaks released new records of US spying on numerous German ministers. Greece missed the deadline for a debt repayment and will have a popular referendum on Sunday to decide what to do. A flotilla of aid and supporters headed for Gaza has been intercepted by the Israeli Navy in international waters. The death toll of the war in Yemen continues to rise, including many civilians. Human Rights Watch has reported that some Saudi led airstrikes in Yemen constitute war crimes.
From CUBA- Cuba and the US will restore diplomatic relations and open embassies in each others countries. Cuba demands that the US leave Guantanamo Bay and lift the economic blockade that has gone on for over 50 years. In Mexico City there was a vigil for the 43 disappeared students. Ecuadorian President Correa has called for creation of an international environmental court. Pope Francis says he wants to chew some coca leaves on his visit to Bolivia. More details on the Gaza flotilla. There was another deadly US drone assassination in Afghanistan.
From RUSSIA- First a comparison of the slaughter of vacationers in Tunisia with the civilian deaths in drone attacks in Yemen and Afghanistan. Then an interview with an economic adviser in the Greek government following their failure to pay their debt to creditors. He points out that 92% of the bailout money in past years has never reached Greece, going instead to the IMF and other creditors.
From CHINA- The BRICS summit is coming up next week, and their new development bank will be operational in 30 days. Police in China arrested 8500 people for environmental crimes in 2014.
From JAPAN- Workers at the Fukushima nuclear power plant have removed the highly radioactive water from one of the reactors. 50 countries signed a deal on the China proposed Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank. China, the largest contributor to CO2 in the atmosphere, announced plans to increase solar and wind generation to reduce coal burning. The US Defense Department released a new national military strategy, the first since 2011.

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)
