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 Sputnik Radio.
     From JAPAN- Prime Minister Abe says his collective self-defense project is necessary because of developments in the South China Sea. Some Japanese citizens have protested against the new military stance. The new head of the US Pacific Command is resolved to act on what he sees as China's increased maritime activities. China has complained to the US over reconnaissance flights over islands China is developing in the South China Sea. More than 20,000 people affected by the Fukushima nuclear disaster are demanding an apology and full compensation from Tokyo Electric Power Company and the national government. Nepal has called on Japan to maintain aid in its recovery from the recent earthquakes. UN Secretary General Ban ki Moon called for postponing peace talks on Yemen. The EU has proposed that member countries accept 40,000 Syrian and Eritrean refugees who reach Italy, as well as other refugees - many EU members are opposed to forced acceptance. The ruling party in Spain lost many seats in regional elections last weekend to anti-austerity leftists.
     From GERMANY-  Voters in Poland elected a new right-wing president. Ireland voted to allow same-sex marriages, the first country to do so by popular vote. Ethiopia announced that its ruling party won elections with 85% of the populace casting ballots- human rights organizations consider the country extremely repressive. Amnesty International has criticized the German government for lack of a strategy to deal with growing racism. One of the rebel leaders in Ukraine was killed by a bomb and gunfire. Saudi-led bombing raids continue in Yemen despite calls for a ceasefire.
     From CUBA- Thousands of Japanese held a rally in Tokyo protesting a proposed new US airbase on Okinawa. FARC rebels in Colombia said they were not interested in retaliation for a recent government airstrike that killed 26 rebels and called for a ceasefire- the next day a FARC commander was killed with 4 other rebels in a bomb attack. Peruvian police removed roadblocks and arrested protestors after the president declared martial law in the region- the protest is over a huge gold mining project. Mexican federal police killed 42 men in Michoacan they said were members of a new cartel- local citizens dispute the government story. The Greek Interior Minister says his country will not be able to pay the next installment to the IMF. The Israeli Air Force began striking the Gaza Strip while Hamas and Islamic Jihad deny launching rockets into Israel.
      From RUSSIA- A brief commentary by Afshin Rattansi on the Queen reading new bills increasing the surveillance of citizens, banning strikes by trade unions, and scrapping the Human Rights Act.

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)
