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 Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Spanish National Radio.
     From JAPAN- The lower house of the Japanese parliament has passed a package of bills which would allow for collective self-defense- this would formally change a pacifist constitution. Over 20,000 Japanese citizens took to the streets to protest the vote. The Chinese Foreign Ministry expressed concern over a change in the Japanese military policy.
     From CUBA- Cuba will build wind farms financed by foreign investors. In Mexico protected indigenous lands have been taken over for highway construction. Protestors in Guatemala demanded the resignation of the President. Bolivia donated a statue of a female guerrilla leader to Argentina to replace one of Christopher Columbus. Pope Francis visited Paraguay's poor and leaders from the LGBT community. In Ecuador a political headquarters was bombed. Over the weekend Saudi jets targeted a hospital in Yemen, bringing the death toll to between 3000 and 4500- on Tuesday Saudi jets did another 200 bombing raids across Yemen.
     From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviews Lord  Nazir Ahmed for his perspective on the Iran deal, then on the news that Britain intends to vastly increase its use of military drones in countries where it has not declared war.
      From GERMANY- President Obama and  the Saudi king said there is an urgent need to end fighting in Yemen- Oxfam warns that 400,000 children are at risk of malnutrition. The Greek parliament voted to accept new Eurozone conditions, leading to fierce street battles with the populace that voted against the referendum. The British Interior Minister announced a plan to keep migrants out of her country, and Hungary is building a wall along the border with Serbia to keep migrants out. Obama and Putin congratulated each other on the Iran nuclear deal.
      From SPAIN- The Iran nuclear deal reached a conclusion in Vienna and most of the world has declared it a great success. This piece details the agreement, talks about Israeli opposition to it, and the strenuous history between the US and Iran beginning in 1953.

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)
