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

This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, China Radio International, Radio Deutsch-Welle, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- Protests are growing against the security bill which could see Japan involved in wars. Germany reported that 1.1 million refugees arrived in the country last year with over a third coming from Syria. A consulting firm says that the weakening US/European alliance is the biggest risk facing the world in 2016.
From CHINA- A series of reports on the latest nuclear bomb test carried out by North Korea- China is quite angry about nuclear proliferation in the Korean peninsula. China wants the 6-party talks reestablished, they were stopped in 2008. Chinese scientists say there was no traceable effects of the test on Chinese soil. The parity rate between Chinese and other world currencies fell to its weakest point in 5 years. The Chinese stock market has unveiled new rules to limit big shareholders from selling their stocks after the market was automatically closed several times because of plunging prices. China conducted test flights on newly built airfields in the South China Sea.
From GERMANY- The US has sued VW for the equipment on their diesel cars that intentionally subverted exhaust emissions tests- the fines could reach $20 billion. A series of stories about the 47 Saudi kingdom beheadings that have led to a great rift in relations between Saudi Arabia and Iran, and is spreading to other areas in the region. The ceasefire between Saudi Arabia and rebels in Yemen ended with Saudi airstrikes escalating. Donald Trump provided propaganda material for the growth of Islamic State in the African continent, and Gambia began enforcing rules that all women wear headscarves.
From RUSSIA- Sophie Shevarnadze interviewed anthropologist Dr. Scott Atran about why Islamic State is attracting so many young people to join its ranks. He says it is a different kind of revolution because it is not state-based, but rather creates a cultural unification as its center.

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)

"One can imagine a sane, healthy, cheerful human society based on no more than the principles of common sense, as validated each day by work, play, and living experience. But this remains the most utopian and fantastic of ideals."
--Edward Abbey
