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

This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and Radio Deutsche-Welle.
From SPAIN- Excerpts from a Panorama about the TTIP from Allison Hughes. Greenpeace leaked secret documents on the negotiation talks concerning the US demands to weaken its environmental and consumer protection regulations. Obama promises jobs and prosperity like Bill Clinton did with NAFTA. Joseph Stieglitz speaks to free trade versus managed trade.
From CUBA- The Spanish king has dissolved the Parliament and set new general elections for next month. In Honduras 4 men were arrested for the murder of environmental activist Berta Caceres, while a prominent radio journalist was shot 4 times but survived. Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff says that she is the victim of a fraud by the extreme right. Survivors of the US bombing of a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Afghanistan want those responsible to stand trial. The CIA was criticized for marking the 5th anniversary of the murder of Osama bin Laden by live tweeting that operation as if in real time.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Professor Sami Ramadani about the execution of Osama bin Laden. He discusses Seymour Hersh's claim that Pakistan was aware of Osama's residence in Pakistan and their assistance to the US military, unlike the official US story
From GERMANY- In Germany a newer right-wing anti-immigrant political party, the AFD or Alternative for Germany, held several rallies and issued a manifesto, saying Islam is not a part of Germany. Protests and rallies were held around the world marking May Day. Senegal signed an agreement allowing US troops to be deployed in the country and use airfields. The US defense secretary is emphasizing a Russian threat in the Balkans and Russia replied.

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)
