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

     This week's show features stories from  NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
     From JAPAN-  A possible volcano warning has been issued for a hot spring resort near Tokyo. Tidal waves up to 12 meters high hit the South Pacific nation of Vanuatu after a cyclone struck in March. US officials say that the global average carbon dioxide concentration reached a record high 400 parts per million for the first time.
     From GERMANY- Over 5000 migrants were rescued from boats in the Mediterranean last weekend, while an unknown amount drowned. There are revelations accusing some German government officials aiding US spying on European politicians and industry. Israeli police have been fighting with Ethiopian Israelis who are demonstrating against racism in the state. Human rights observers in Syria say that more than 50 civilians were killed in a US led airstrike this week. At a meeting in Ryad, French President Hollande said he supports the Saudi bombing of Yemen while selling Qatar 24 fighter jets for $6.3 billion.
      From CUBA- Human Rights Watch has accused the Saudi-led bombing campaign of dropping cluster bombs in Yemen manufactured and supplied by the US- 180 nations have banned the use of cluster munitions, but not the US or Saudi Arabia. 50 civilians were killed in a refugee camp in Yemen in the middle of ground fighting. In Mexico there has been a spike in crime related clashes in various states, with many deaths and an army helicopter gunned down- the government is blaming the violence on a new Jalisco cartel. At least 17 people were killed in the latest US targeted assassinations in Afghanistan.
      From SPAIN- Workers celebrated May day around Europe, with tens of thousands marching in Spain, calling for workers rights and the end of government spending cuts. Many demanded that the economic crisis be paid for by those who caused it, not the workers. The decrease in the power of unions has been worsened by austerity measures, leading to drastic pay cuts for the rank and file, huge increases for corporate leaders, and a generation entering adulthood without jobs.

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)
