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, NHK World Radio Japan, and Sputnik Radio.
From GERMANY- 15,000 Kurds marched in Dusseldorf to protest Turkish state terror in Kurdish towns. Kurds in Turkey have called for self rule in southeastern Turkey. Saudi Arabia and Turkey announced collaboration on security, military, and economic affairs. The Prime Minister of Iraq accused Turkey of failing to withdraw troops as previously agreed. 300 Syrians were evacuated from the north to Damascus. The Egyptian government has shutdown Facebook just a few weeks before the anniversary of the start of the so-called Arab Spring. Severe flooding hit South America and the UK.
From CUBA- In Chiapas, Mexico, local indigenous community gardens are being threatened in a land grab by the municipalities. Brazilian President Rousseff raised the minimum wage by 11%. The German Finance Minister has called for the creation of a common EU army instead of 28 separate ones for domestic and foreign security. Scientists predict the storms that hit Texas could raise the north pole temperatures by 50 degrees Fahrenheit.
From JAPAN- Japanese agricultural ministers have a new program to minimize the effects of global warming on farm produce. Japan and Britain are going to hold a second summit between foreign and defense ministers. The 3 candidates for President of Taiwan held their first debate- the election is January 16. Saudi Arabia projects a massive budget deficit for 2016 due to low oil prices and their huge military expenditures.
From RUSSIA- Sophie Shevarnadze interviewed physician Jill Stein about the current American presidential race. Ms Stein is the Green candidate in the election and has been excluded from US media coverage.

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)
