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

This week's show features stories from Sputnik Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi hosts Going Underground 3 times a week. Here is a new interview he did with legendary filmmaker/documentarian John Pilger. He is critical of President Obama's reign, pointing out the differences between the image and the reality of his actions. Pilger goes on to point out the US frenzy of preparation for military conflicts with Russia and China, and the American media's failure to report on it.
From JAPAN- Among the many confrontations in Asian waters this week, Japan accused both Russian and Chinese naval ships of entering its territorial waters. The US and India made a series of agreements on military matters and the building of six new nuclear power plants in India. Japan has a plan to recycle waste from radioactive fallout from Fukushima into building materials. The EU has proposed a new aid plan for African nations that help prevent migrants from trying to reach Europe.
From GERMANY- There have been more than 40 arson attacks this year on refugee shelters in Germany. The german parliament went ahead and declared the massacre of Armenians by Turkey as a genocide, resulting in many of the ministers receiving death threats. The EU wants to use its naval force in the Mediterranean to enforce an arms embargo on Libya. Large demonstrations continue in Poland against the current nationalist government.
From CUBA- In Brazil a third minister installed by interim President Temer has been fired for conspiracy. Guatemala sent 8 former military officers to trial for crimes against humanity. Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega will run for re-election, and the CIA has had permanent operations in Ecuador for more than 50 years. Amnesty International accuses Britain of making the cluster bombs used by Saudi Arabia in Yemen, while Britain is upgrading its Trident nuclear missiles at a cost of $300 billion without notifying Parliament. Human Rights Watch wants Israel investigated for Israeli war crimes against Palestinians, and Monday saw Israeli settlers held a controversial march in the Old City of Jerusalem. The UN released new documents showing that more than 10,000 refugees have died attempting to cross the Mediterranean Sea.

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)

"More terrorists are given training and sanctuary in the United States than anywhere on earth. They include mass murderers, torturers, former and future tyrants and assorted international criminals. This is virtually unknown to the American public, thanks to the freest media on earth."
-John Pilger
