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 Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
From JAPAN- A second hydrogen filling station for fuel cell cars is opening in Japan. The Japanese Foreign Ministry is preparing for the possibility of Trump becoming US President. Japan and China continue to argue about jurisdiction over the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea. North Korea is said to have conducted a successful simulation of the reentry of a ballistic missile, a test for installing a potential nuclear warhead. President Obama again told President Putin that Syrian President Assad must be removed to end the civil war- this occurred while Putin was announcing his withdrawal of troops from Syria.
From GERMANY- More on the Russian withdrawal of the majority of Russian troops in Syria. German Chancellor Merkel supports the proposal to use Turkey to prevent unwanted refugees from reaching Europe- many say that the Turkish government has become fascist and that it is blackmailing the EU. A bomb blast hit Ankara on Sunday killing many civilians- Turkey blamed the Kurds and attacked the PKK in Iraq and in Turkey. In Germany there were regional elections last weekend, preceded by protests and street clashes- the right-wing populist party made significant gains running on an anti-immigrant platform.
From CUBA- 23 members of the US Congress will join President Obama on his historic visit to Cuba beginning Sunday. There was a protest at the US Agency for Intentional Development in Washington DC calling for a cut to funding for a controversial dam project in Honduras. Indigenous activist Berta Caceres was murdered 2 weeks ago for trying to halt the dam, and this week another activist, Nelson Garcia, was gunned down. Iran has rejected as ridiculous a US court ruling that it must pay $10 billion in compensation for the 9/11 attacks, which were reportedly carried out by Saudi nationals. On Tuesday Saudi led airstrikes killed 41 civilians in Yemen.
From SPAIN- Political fugitive Edward Snowden did live video interviews from Russia to Brooklyn and Spain in the past week. He warned that the massive collection of citizen data in the US and around the world is falsely framed as necessary for security in the face of terrorism. He talked about the free speech restrictions that are expanding globally.

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)
