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

This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, Spanish National Radio, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From GERMANY- I produce this show on Thursday morning and news is just in that Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff will face an impeachment trial, ending 13 years of leftist rule in the country. Two reports on the Greek financial crisis including large street protests. Three reports on Turkey where President Erdogan continues severe crackdowns on dissent, including journalists, and Human Rights Watch reported Turkish border patrols killing Syrian refugees. Sadiq Kahn has become mayor of London, the first Muslim mayor of a major Western capital.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed former London mayor Ken Livingstone about Sadiq Kahn, the new mayor. He discusses how the campaign was handled and the significance of a Muslim from immigrant parents winning the election despite dirty tricks by the opposing candidate.
From CUBA- Donald Trump said that Sadiq Kahn could be an exception to his proposed ban on Muslims coming into the US, which Sadiq called ignorant. Labor reforms in France bypassed Parliament and have led to growing street riots. In the UK targeted killings with drones could lead to murder charges for all those involved.
From SPAIN- Allison Hughes reports on conflicts in the handling of refugees in the European Union. Countries refusing to take allotted refugees will be fined, and Turkey insists that its citizens be allowed visa free travel in the EU.
From JAPAN- The UN says that in 2015 there were 244 million international migrants and refugees. President Obama will visit Hiroshima during the G7 summit to show his opposition to nuclear weapon proliferation, but will not apologize for 1945. 60 nations are attending a UN working group to ban nuclear weapons- no countries with nuclear weapons have attended. An NHK poll shows most Japanese approve of Obama's visit to Hiroshima and strongly oppose restarting nuclear power plants. Then an Insight on the recent Party gathering in North Korea.

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)
