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

This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From SPAIN- Last week the EU signed an accord with Turkey to limit the number of refugees entering Greece. Many have called this the "accord of shame," because of the collective deportations- there has been an international outcry and demonstrations in 50 cities in Spain. Activists in Spain are filing criminal charges against their government for signing the accord. Then a commentary on the terrorist acts in Belgium, and the resulting racism and intolerance toward refugees spreading in Europe.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Muharrem Erbey a human rights lawyer who was jailed by the Turkish government for presenting evidence of Turkish atrocities against Kurdish people. Amnesty International accuses Turkey of applying collective punishment against the Kurds, this lawyer describes it as genocide and ethnocide. He also says he has evidence that Turkey is supporting the so-called Islamic State who in turn are killing Kurds.
From CUBA- The historic visit by President Obama to Cuba was extensively covered on RHC. Obama and Raoul Castro held talks on Monday. Obama gave a speech saying he was there to bury the last remnant of the Cold War in the Americas and acknowledged that the US isolationist policy toward Cuba makes no sense in the 21st century. Obama said he will try to get Congress to lift the 50 year old economic blockade. Then a review of the Venezuelan press on Obama's Cuban visit. Michelle Obama met with young female students in Cuba to find out that all Cuban girls have equal and free education at all levels. The next stop for Obama was Argentina where citizens planned large marches to honor the victims of the military dictatorship that ruled the country from 1976-1983- Obama promised to declassify secret documents from the era. His arrival in Argentina was met with opposition protests. In Brazil a media professor argues that Brazilian media is fomenting conditions for a coup to oust President Dilma Rousseff.
From JAPAN- A ship carrying enough high-grade plutonium for 40 atomic bombs is on its way from Japan to the US. Japanese nuclear regulators have suspended screening for the restart of 2 nuclear reactors until the truth of the Fukushima disaster is revealed. Part of the upcoming G7 meeting in Japan will include talks on nuclear disarmament. The Japanese industry ministry has plans to increase the use of hydrogen fuel cells cars by lowering the cost to the same as gasoline powered cars and building more filling stations.

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)
