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

This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, Radio Deutsche-Welle, China Radio International, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- In Fukushima tests are underway to incinerate contaminated waste from the devastated nuclear power plant. China is upset that South Korea may employ a new US missile system as a response to the North Korean missile test. The largest military drill in Asia has started in Thailand. The South Korean military has intensified its broadcast of propaganda from trucks along the border with the North.
From CUBA- The US may sell off the Office of Cuban Broadcasts, which for decades has transmitted subversive Radio Marti propaganda to Cuba. In Venezuela right-wing lawmakers have proposed an amnesty for those responsible for violent anti-government riots in 2014. Israel has accused UN Secretary General Ban ki Moon of promoting terror because he defended Palestinian uprisings. The US Defense department has requested more money to fund Israeli missile systems. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has said that a reinforced fence may be set up around the entire occupied territories. A leaked report says that Turkish President Erdogan threatened EU leaders with a flood of refugees unless they were offered more money.
From GERMANY- The former Greek finance minister has launched a new pan-european political movement, Democracy in Europe 2025. Lawmakers in the French lower house approved measures to strip citizenship from convicted terrorists. Turkey says it cannot absorb any more refugees. NATO Defense Ministers met to discuss how to keep refugees from reaching Europe.
From CHINA- Last weekend North Korea launched an earth observation satellite into orbit which has created great controversy, especially in the US, South Korea, and Japan. Hours after the launchS Korea and the US announced the largest ever military war games in March. Then South Korea halted the industrial park it shared with N Korea. S Korea fired warning shots at at N Korean patrol boat. Australian PM Turnbull will continue plans to deport refugees to a remote island 3000 KM away.
From RUSSIA- First the BBC is accused of promoting Cold War fear of Russia. Then Afshin Rattansi interviewed Melinda Taylor, the lawyer for Julian Assange. A UN panel ruled that the British government has violated Assange's human rights by detaining him and that he may sue for damages. He still has received no assurances that he will not be arrested if he leaves the Ecuadorian Embassy.

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)

"We in the West have deluded ourselves into believing that we actually have a truly free press. We don't. And we can see that in the difference between what Wikileaks does and what the rest of the press does."
--Julian Assange
