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 Sputnik Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
From RUSSIA- On his program called Going Underground Afshin Rattansi starts with the 911 coup in Chile. He then interviews Carne Ross, a former UK diplomat who produced the documentary The Accidental Anarchist: Life Without Government. Ross disputed Tony Blair's justification for entering the war on Iraq. They discuss the Saudi Arabian role in the rise of terrorism, and why does every side think that they are the good guys. Ross then describes the role of and problems with sanctions, and the need for dialogue with North Korea.
From JAPAN- German Chancellor Angela Merkel wants to be involved in negotiations with North Korea, using a framework as was used in Iran in 2015. The annual UN General Assembly has opened with a global ban on nuclear weapons, climate change, and North Korea to be the major topics. The US is pushing China to implement new sanctions on North Korea. A report on the Myanmar reaction to international criticism over its treatment of the Rohingya muslim minority- Myanmar's de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi will not attend the current UN general assembly. Currents in the Pacific Ocean along Japan are radically changing from global warming, leading to almost no salmon being caught there this year.
From CUBA- Cuba experienced 24 hours of hurricane Irma with category 5 winds and major destruction- Venezuela was the first country to send humanitarian aid. While climate change does not create more hurricanes, increased ocean temperature makes them much more severe. The 8.2 magnitude earthquake in Mexico last week has affected 2.3 million people, mainly in the south. In Oakland CA hundreds of activists are protesting a military training event for police called Urban Shield.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reported on the upcoming Catalan election for independence from Spain. The federal government has declared the referendum illegal and says that officials involved will be punished. In recent years the banned language of the region has returned and many people want autonomous rule. This election, like the one that failed in Scotland, are significant to the future of the EU.

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at http://www.mediageek.net/sound/2006/mg100606-64k.mp3

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)

"During the Cold War, a group of Russian journalists toured the United States. On the final day of their visit, they were asked by their hosts for their impressions. 'I have to tell you,' said their spokesman, 'that we were astonished to find after reading all the newspapers and watching TV, that all the opinions on all the vital issues were by and large, the same. To get that result in our country, we imprison people, we tear out their fingernails. Here, you don't have that. What's the secret? How do you do it?'"
- John Pilger
