A weekly 30 minute review of news and opinion, recorded from a shortwave radio. With times and freqs for listening at home. Free to rebroadcast. Netherlands, China, Russia, Spain, and Cuba.
Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (February 11) is up at the website
<http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml>in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (3.3MB) (28:53)
This week's show features stories from Radio Netherlands, China Radio International, The Voice Of Russia, Spanish National Radio, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From NETHERLANDS- NATO officials are meeting in France this week, but will not discuss the prescence of US nuclear weapons on European soil. Up to 500 of these bombs remain from the Cold War, and the US administration continues its threats to nations like Iran, who the US accuses of developing the means to make nuclear weapons.
From CHINA- During Sec of State Rice's European tour, she said the US would not accept Iran's "foot-dragging" on resolving the question of nuclear development. Iran's Foreign Minister denies all allegations of weapons development.
From RUSSIA- American scientists are busy developing a new generation of nuclear weapons, which many fear will trigger a return to nuclear testing and a new nuclear arms race. The CIA has agreed to declassify information on Nazi war criminals and their alleged cooperation with US secret services.
From SPAIN- Former Chilean dictator Pinochet has offered to pay $5 million in back taxes, hoping to unfreeze his assets. Cuba, where 50% of the adults smoke, has banned tobacco smoking in public places.
From CUBA- A Viewpoint on Condaleeza's Euro tour, where she is hoping to change her image from war hawk to a diplomat committed to peace and reconstructing relations with European allies. Then a Viewpoint on the ceasefire reached between Israel and Palestine, which the world hoped would have a significant effect on the region.
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.
This program will be aired on Friday evening at 7pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via <http://www.kzyx.org>
There are several other streams that work better- <http://www.freakradio.org> Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am (PST)
Also check out LavaLamp Radio (Japan)- <http://www.radiolavalamp.org>
streaming the SWR, check out the schedule.
And the Partytown streams are great and informative- <http://www.partytown.com/radio>
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)
