NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
http://npaper-wehaa.com/boulder-weekly/2015/03/26/#?article=2478097

This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, Sputnik Radio, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on two significant elections in Europe this past week. The first was in Italy, where Prime Minister Matteo Renzi saw a referendum that would change the constitution rejected by voters- following that he resigned as he had promised. In Austria Green candidate Alexander Van der Bellen won the presidency, giving some relief to those worried about a complete far-right takeover of European leadership. Eurozone finance ministers are discussing Greek debt and plans to add even more austerity measures, including privatizing ports and historic sites. France has elections coming up in May, President Hollande has announced he will not seek re-election, and several right wing candidates are cuing for the leadership.
From JAPAN- Japanese and US defense chiefs have reaffirmed a desire to stay aligned despite Trump's campaign threats of changing the military relationship between the two countries. Trump reported that Japanese telecom giant SoftBank group will invest $50 billion and create 50,000 jobs in the US over the next 4 years. The foreign ministers of NATO and the EU agreed to boost defense cooperation over concerns over Trump's stance opposing their military buildups.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi's guest on Going Underground was filmmaker John Pilger whose latest release is "The Coming War On China." They discuss the 400 US military bases surrounding China as a provocative blockade building steadily for the past 6 years. In the process both China and the US have changed their nuclear weapons policies from low-alert to high-alert. Western media has avoided reporting on the largest accumulation of US air and naval forces since the second world war. Pilger describes the threats from US military bases in the Marshall Islands and Okinawa.
From CUBA- Arrests have been made in Venezuela for those accused of hacking and shutting down the banking system last week. The UN Environment program posthumously awarded assassinated Honduran activist Berta Caceres its Champion Of The Earth award. There were large protests in Brazil against plans to shut down corruption investigations. The UN General Assembly again passed a resolution calling on Israel to withdraw from Syria's Golan Heights, seized in 1967.

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 http://radio.mediageek.net

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 < http://www.kzyx.org >

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)

"We journalists have to be brave enough to defy those who seek our collusion in selling their latest bloody adventure in someone else's country. That means always challenging the official story, however patriotic that story may appear, however seductive and insidious it is. For propaganda relies on us in the media to aim its deceptions not at a far away country but at you at home. In this age of endless imperial war, the lives of countless men, women and children depend on the truth or their blood is on us. Those whose job it is to keep the record straight ought to be the voice of people, not power."
-John Pilger
