The SHORTWAVE REPORT 7/29/05 ¡LISTEN GLOBALLY!
28 Jul 2005
A weekly 30 minute review of news and opinion, recorded from a shortwave radio. With times and freqs for listening at home. 2 files- broadcast and slow-modem streaming. Free to rebroadcast. China, Netherlands, Cuba, and Russia.
Dear Radio Friend,
            The latest Shortwave Report (July 29) 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) (28:59)

This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- A report on the first 2 days of the 6-party talks on the Korean peninsula. More than a thousand protestors surrounded the main US base in Afghanistan, angry that the military was detaining villagers without consulting local authorities. There were large protests in London over the murder of an innocent Brazilian by plain clothes police in a subway.
From NETHERLANDS- Britain's "Shoot To Kill" policy is discussed by a member of the British Civil Rights Group, "Liberty."
From CUBA- An Italian appeals court ordered the arrest of 6 more CIA operatives in connection with the kidnapping of a Muslim cleric, taken to Egypt for torture. This US practice is referred to as "an extraordinary rendition."
From RUSSIA- US Defense Secretary Rumsfeld made it clear that the US does not plan to remove troops from bases in Central Asia, despite recent requests to do so by the Shanghai Organization for Cooperation- the SOC consists of Russia, China, Kyrgystan, Tajikistan, Kazakstan, and Uzbekistan. A Russian analyst questions the US policy toward Iranian nuclear development, pointing out the different reactions the US had toward nuclear weapons possessed by India, Pakistan and Israel. In the wake of the London bombings, US security measures have been stepped up- including bringing Israeli officers to the US to train US police in detecting suicide bombers and shooting suspects in the head to prevent triggering bombs they might be carrying.

      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)
