From GERMANY- Britain's Deputy Prime Minister has called for an investigation of British troop activities following the release of Iraq war documents by Wikileaks. In France, everyone who purchases an electric car receives a 5000 Euro bonus from the state.
From CUBA- At the United Nations annual vote calling on the US to end its embargo on Cuba, only the US and Israel voted against the measure. A gathering of Catholic Bishops called on Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian territories. An Israeli General revealed how much ammunition Israeli soldiers used in the attack on the Gaza bound aid flotilla in May. The US is expanding the secret CIA effort to target militants in Pakistan. Bolivian President Evo Morales has been visiting Iran and making many accords and bilateral agreements. The Presidents of Venezuela and Colombia are meeting again to further the agreements reached in August.
From RUSSIA- 4 Wikileaks related stories. A Russian Parliamentarian condemned Iraq's decision to hang Tariq Aziz, which he said is an attempt to distract attention from the Wikileaks Iraq revelations. 100 Iraqis have filed a lawsuit against the British military on charges of torture. Wikileaks is going to make public secret documents from Russia, China, and other countries. Then a report on the content revealed by Wikileaks questioning who endangered the US national interest- the website or those who hid the facts?

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 6:30pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via
There are several other streams that work better- Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am.(PDST)

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)
