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, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and Spanish National Radio.
From JAPAN- On his way to Japan, VP Pence revealed a plan to increase US missiles in Alaska. He then went on to meet with Japanese PM Abe and together tougher economic sanctions against North Korea. North Korea criticized Trump's announced US increase in low yield nuclear weapons, calling it a declaration of war against the whole world. South Korea welcomed the North's decision to send a high-ranking delegation to the Olympics. US Secretary of State Tillerson reiterated the threats of further sanctions against North Korea.
From CUBA- Tillerson gave a speech threatening Venezuela and Cuba as he began a tour of several Latin American countries. China refutes US charges of supporting poor governance in Venezuela. A US B-52 dropped a record number of guided bombs on alleged Taliban targets in Afghanistan. In London a judge ruled to uphold a British arrest warrant against Julian Assange for jumping bail on Swedish charges that have been dropped.
From RUSSIA- More details on the situation Julian Assange faces after a judge refused to drop his British arrest warrant, despite the UN Human Rights panel criticism of his detention. Trump falsely claimed that British protestors want an end to universal health care, the NHS.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the war in Syria which escalated when a Russian jet was shot down by rebel forces. US Secretary of State Tillerson is promoting regime change in Syria. Patrick Cockburn wrote in the Independent called "It"s Time We Saw Economic Sanctions For What They Really Are- War Crimes." He also wrote about the effect the US backed Kurds are having in the strategic balance in Syria. Recent reports of chlorine gas attacks in Syria are blamed on the Syrian government by the US- Syria says the claims are intentional lies to create an excuse for US attacks.

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)

"War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group know what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses."
- Major General Smedley Butler USMC, 1933
