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

     This week's show features stories from  China Radio International, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and Radio Deutsche-Welle.
     From CHINA- China is seriously concerned about US plans to send military aircraft and ships to the South China Sea. Iran warned against  targeting ships carrying humanitarian aid to Yemen in conjunction with the International Red Cross. China urged Japan to be cautious after the ruling coalition gave formal approval to expand the scope of operations of Japan's so-called "self-defense forces." China has decided to restart the construction of 27 new nuclear power plants.
     From JAPAN-  The planned restart of a Japanese nuclear power plant has been delayed for a short period. NHK polled Japanese citizens on the declining number of children, and whether they wanted to see nuclear power plants restarted. Prime Minister Abe has approved a set of bills revising the scope of the self-defense forces- they now will include aiding other nations that are attacked, with no geographical restraints. The Philippine military has emphasized their claim to sovereignty over some islands in the South China Sea only 25 kms from islands being developed by China- they are urging Philippine citizens to move to the islands. The US Air Force will station 400 special forces in Tokyo along with Osprey military aircraft.
     From CUBA- Jimmy Carter has made a visit to the Gaza Strip, saying that the situation was intolerable- 8 months after the Israeli attacks not one house has been rebuilt. In UK elections, the Conservatives won an outright majority in Parliament, with David Cameron saying he will hold a referendum on withdrawing from the EU.
      From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviews Ken Livingstone, Labor leader and former mayor of London, about the causes and implications of the UK elections.
      From GERMANY- The massive parade in Moscow marking 70 years since victory over Nazi Germany was attended by 30 global leaders including the Chinese President- but it was boycotted by WW2 allies the US, France, and Britain. German Chancellor Merkel went to Moscow the next day to lay a wreath and lecture the press on Crimea and Ukraine. Two reports from the Saudi-led war on Yemen, which entered a 5 day ceasefire on Tuesday. The EU is discussing a new way to deal with the ever increasing numbers of migrants trying to enter Europe by boats in the Mediterranean, spreading responsibility to more EU members.

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)

"The best hope is that one of these days the ground will get disgusted enough just to walk away - leaving people with nothing more to stand ON than what they have so bloody well stood FOR up to now."
