NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-

     This week's show features stories from NHK Japan, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Sputnik Radio.
     From JAPAN- The Japanese Foreign Minister wants to implement the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty to prohibit all nuclear weapons testing- the US and China have failed to ratify the treaty. The Japanese Defense Minister wants to prepare troops for possible deployment under the new Security legislation. Russian President Putin said the US policy in Syria has been a complete failure. Syria has called on other countries to join the Russian-Syrian coalition to fight the terrorist groups in the country.
     From SPAIN- A report on the regional elections in Catalonia where 77% of the people voted. The poll, seen by many as a step toward independence from Spain, gave the separatists a majority in Parliament. Press reviews of the election from Spain are compared to international reporting.
     From CUBA- At the UN General Assembly leaders from Argentina, Bolivia, and Ecuador addressed Latin American and global concerns. Palestinian President Abbas wrote that Israel is attempting to finish destroying his country. The UN confirmed that over 130 people, mostly civilians were killed by Saudi airstrikes at a wedding party in Yemen.
      From GERMANY- Saudi leaders threatened Syrian President Assad with military strikes if he refuses to leave his office. France began airstrikes in Syria. German Chancellor Merkel rejected a Turkish offer to create a safe zone for Syrian refugees. Merkel joined leaders from Brazil, India, and Japan in calling for changes in the UN Security Council. VW has been given a deadline to present a solution to the emission problems in their cars. Thousand rallied in Mexico City on the one year anniversary of the 43 students being disappeared.
      From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Mike Gonzalez, co-author of "The Last Drop- The Politics Of Water." The privatization and commercialization of water is creating several global crises, fueled by corporate greed.

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

  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 < >

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)
