     This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Sputnik Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, and Radio Havana Cuba.
    From GERMANY- Greece is facing a crisis because Parliament cannot agree on a new president. Then three stories covering the failed UN resolution calling for an end to Israeli occupation of Palestinian territories, and Palestine's application to join the International Criminal Court. Ukrainian President Poroshenko allowed a prisoner exchange with separatists in the east though fighting continues there. The Syrian government offered to have peace talks with the rebel forces but was turned down.
     From RUSSIA- An interview with FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, who the ACLU called "the most gagged person in American history." She proposes that Islamic State is a marketing attempt by western propaganda media to create new fear and to justify more spending in the military-industrial complex. She discusses Leon Panetta's comment that the war with IS will last 30 years.
     From JAPAN-  The US performed a targeted assassination of an Al-Shabab leader with a drone in Somalia. 2015 is the 70th anniversary of the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki and Japan is urging the world to abolish nuclear weapons. Ukraine is shifting its source of nuclear fuel from Russia to the US company Westinghouse. The Yankee nuclear powerplant in Vermont is being shut down, though decommissioning will take 60 years- the Yankee nuke is the same type that melted down in Fukushima. The former soviet republic of Lithuania became the 19th member of the Eurozone. Ukrainian President Poroshenko will meet with Vladimir Putin in January in Kazakstan.
     From CUBA- An update on the missing 43 students in Mexico, where more than 2 dozen town halls have been occupied in the state of Guerrero- demonstrators are also calling for a boycott of upcoming elections. Then a Viewpoint on the subversive activities of American groups including USAID, the United States Aid for International Development, using rap groups, Twitter and other methods.

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)
