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

This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Sputnik Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes starts with Yemen, where the Cholera epidemic has spread to 600,000 people in just 6 months. The UN Human Rights Council has avoided investigating human rights violations in the war in Yemen, as Saudi Arabia maintains a seat on the council. Several stories on the hydrogen bomb test in North Korea and the reactions and threats at the UN and elsewhere. Leaders around the globe expressed deep concern and worry, with China and Russia emphasizing that dialogue and compromise were better choices than increased threats from the west.
From RUSSIA- On his program called Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi spoke with former Scottish MP Tommy Sheridan. Sheridan is an activist opposed to Britain's Trident nuclear arsenal on submarines docked in Scotland. They discuss the threat to Britain created by Trident, and the deceptions from the Ministry of Defense and Teresa May. He talks about the US and Britain making huge profits by arming the world and then creating wars elsewhere to deploy them. He accuses the British establishment of doing everything in their power to keep Jeremy Corbyn from becoming Prime Minister because of his opposition to the military industrial complex. He points out the attempts to crush socialism in Venezuela and Latin America, and the use of Scottish airports by the US in illegal kidnapping for torture known as rendition.
From JAPAN- Several reports on the direct reactions to the North Korean bomb test. South Korea launched live fire drills along the Korean coast, and announced the formation of a military unit to target the North Korean leadership. Trump told Japan and South Korea that they will be allowed to buy higher grade weaponry worth billions of dollars. Putin condemned the North Korean bomb test but reiterated his call for dialogue with North Korea. The German government plans to set up a fund to tackle air pollution, including promoting electric vehicles.
From CUBA- French President Macron held talks with Venezuelan opposition leaders looking for support for regime change. The 9th annual BRICS summit concluded in China. The rescinding of the DACA program for young immigrants in the US was met with protests across the nation.

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)
