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

This week's show features stories from NHK Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and Radio Deutsche-Welle.
From JAPAN- In response to recent North Korean test launches, the Japanese Defense Ministry is going to upgrade its missile capability. The US restated its opposition to Chinese vessels in disputed waters of the South China Sea. Nagasaki commemorated the anniversary of the atomic bombing with speeches calling for the abolition of nuclear weapons.
From CUBA- 2 stories on the Brazilian senate vote to move forward with impeaching elected President Dilma Rousseff- meanwhile interim President Temer is reversing many of the reforms Dilma enacted. UN peace talks to end the Saudi war on Yemen have failed. Then a Viewpoint on Argentina- the new government under President Macri attempted to arrest the leader of the Mothers of the Plaza as US Secretary of State John Kerry arrived to discuss 2 new US military bases in the country.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Julian Assange about accusations from Hillary Clinton that recent Wikileaks about the DNC came from Russia- Assange points out that no one has questioned the authenticity of the emails that have led to the resignation of several leaders of the DNC, just which of the numerous hackers gave the emails to them. Then a brief press review about the increased US bombing in Libya and Syria and British troops on the ground.
From GERMANY- Two reports on the fighting in Syria including the bombing of another Doctors without Borders hospital. Several reports on refugees in Germany, including an increase in the number turned away, and police raids in several cities targeting preachers suspected of recruiting for the so-called Islamic State. 2 million people gathered across Turkey in support of the government, which is calling for the reintroduction of the death penalty. President Erdogan visited President Putin and struck up new trade deals, a restart of the $18 billion gas pipeline, and a relaxing of tensions between the two countries.

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)
