NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
http://npaper-wehaa.com/boulder-weekly/2015/03/26/#?article=2478097

This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, and Spanish National Radio.
From GERMANY- In Germany, 2 internet journalists were investigated for treason- this led to demonstrations for a free press, and the dismissal of the Chief Prosecutor. The Greek stock market started the week off falling 30% before trading was halted, and Syriza party members vowed to reject Greek austerity measures.
From CUBA- The United Nations Economic Commission said that the economic blockade of Cuba has cost the country $117 billion in profit. Over a hundred journalists have been killed in Mexico in the past 15 years. Bolivia has declared August 2 as "Anti-Imperialism Day," and the government of El Salvador called the gang-enforced transportation strike a failed attempt to destabilize the country. A US court has determined that Ecuador must pay $96 million in damages to Chevron Oil.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviews British Minister Barry Gardner about Britain opening up public parks for fracking, and allowing the use of systemic pesticides banned by the EU because of damage to the bee population.
From JAPAN- Thursday August 6th was the 70th anniversary of the US dropping an atomic bomb on Hiroshima- ceremonies were held in the Peace Park including peace declarations, and demands to eliminate nuclear weapons. Prime Minister Abe called US VP Biden to investigate NSA spying of the Japanese government and businesses as reported by Wikileaks last week.
From SPAIN- The Spanish Security Council approved the use of a rural part of the country for the storage of nuclear waste. The regional government is attempting to block this development. The federal government is considering determining that the construction is essential to national public interest.

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.
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 < http://www.kzyx.org >

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)

"How do we prevent Iran developing an atomic bomb, when, on the American side, dropping atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki is not recognized as a war crime?"
