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 NHK World Radio Japan, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
From JAPAN- The Iranian government lifted all restrictions on use of the internet after economic protests ceased. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov expressed opposition to the US installing new missile systems in Japan. North and South Korea began discussing participation in the winter olympics, including a unified Korean team. A conference was held in Vancouver to unify pressure through sanctions on North Korean nuclear development- neither China nor Russia were invited. US defense Secretary Mattis says that the US has a plan in place for war against North Korea- Russia said the conference worsened the Korean situation.
From RUSSIA- George Galloway interviewed Asian expert Rod Wye about the significance of the North Korean entry into the winter olympics. He says it was the North's idea to take part in the events and open channels for dialogue with the South. They discuss the threat of regime change as motivation for the North nuclear development, and the possible international acceptance of them sharing that capability with India, Pakistan, and Israel.
rmy has been battling with Israeli aircraft and rockets fired at Syrian soil.
From CUBA- Peruvians who were sterilized by force are seeking a reversal of the pardoning of former President Fujimori. A terrorist plot to bomb the Cuban embassy in Venezuela was averted. In Mexico an independent journalist was assassinated after criticizing the upcoming presidential election. The Pentagon is planning an escalation of the war in Afghanistan, as well as training more Kurdish fighters in Syria. The Guardian reported that Trump is planning to loosen the restrictions on the use of nuclear weapons. The New York Times reported on US plans for a war with North Korea.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the return of the Catalan parliament and exiled former president Carlos Puigdemont's attempts to be a candidate. Palestinian leaders met in response to Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel, which effectively ends the possibility of a peace settlement under the Oslo accords.

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://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)

"In reality, everybody in Congress is a stand-in for some kind of lobbyist. In many cases it's difficult to tell whether it's the companies that are lobbying the legislators or whether it's the other way around."
