     This week's show features stories from  Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and NHK World Radio Japan.
     From GERMANY- 4 stories about the new government in Greece and relations with the EU. In Frankfort there was a large demonstration opposing austerity measures in EU member states such as Greece. Ukrainian President Poroshenko visited Germany and accused rebels of failing to meet the ceasefire timetable. The Ukrainian Parliament voted for self-rule in some parts of eastern Ukraine. Following Netanyahu's victory in Israel, the EU has called for a relaunch of the peace process with Palestine. An unarmed predator drone went down in Syria, and the US Defense Department confirmed it used a drone in Somalia to kill a suspect in the 2013 Kenya attack on a shopping center. More than 1 1/2 million people took part in an anti-government demonstration in Brazil.
     From CUBA- ALBA, the Bolivarian Alliance of the Americas, expressed their support for the female presidents of Brazil and Argentina, who are both facing right-wing campaigns to destabilize their governments. ALBA also asked the people of the US and Barack Obama to repeal the Executive Order issued against Venezuela, since they consider it interference with the internal affairs of a sovereign nation. Thousands of Venezuelans took to the streets to support a new law giving President Maduro extensive new powers. Human Rights Watch reported that cluster bombs have been used in Libya over the past 4 months.
     From RUSSIA-  George Galloway discusses the political disaster in Libya and the presence of ISIS with British-Algerian journalist Hafsa Kara-Mustapha.
     From JAPAN- Syrian President Assad says he wants action not words from Western nations if they want to bring an end to the civil war. France has blocked websites belonging to extremist groups as part of new strict anti-terrorist laws. 3 Japanese tourists were among those killed in a terrorist attack in Tunisia. 5 more nuclear power plants in Japan have been slated for decommissioning- the process is expected to take at least 28 years and there are no permanent facilities for storing the waste in Japan. France, Germany, and Italy announced that they will join a new development bank proposed by China- this would serve as an alternative to the IMF.

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)
