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

     This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, NHK Japan, and Radio Havana Cuba.
     From SPAIN- First, European governments are overwhelmed with the biggest migratory crisis since WW2. Then there have been racist attacks on migrants in Germany. Finally several perspectives on fear of Jihadists in Spain, escalated by the attempted attack on a train from Amsterdam to Paris.
     From GERMANY- There were riots with migrants breaking through the Macedonian border with Greece. Then there were several days of right-wing attacks on migrant shelters and police in Germany. Politicians including President Merkel have tried to calm the situation, but much tension and the threats of more violence remain. In western Nepal indigenous demonstrators wielding spears killed 8 in protest of a new constitution and borders.
     From JAPAN- There is a UN Conference on Nuclear Disarmament underway in Hiroshima , hoping to create a world freed from nuclear weapons. University groups in Japan are organizing to pressure the government to scrap the new National Security Bills, which would end state pacifism. The Sendai nuclear power plant which restarted last week has developed some leaking pipes, requiring a stall in bringing it up to full power. The Thai government publicly  destroyed confiscated elephant ivory- new laws require citizens to register their ivory items- 30,000 elephants a year are killed for their tusks, primarily in Africa.
      From CUBA- There is much political upheaval in Guatemala but President Molina says he will stay in power despite widespread calls for his resignation. Venezuelan President Maduro declared a  60 day "state of exception" last Friday, following Colombian paramilitary attacks at the border. Thousands of Palestinians affiliated with  a UN educational agency took to the streets over financial cutbacks. 80,000 UK citizens have signed a petition for the arrest of Israeli President Netanyahu during his upcoming visit. Then a Viewpoint on the growing trend of austerity measures in counties around the world- Canada is used as a model of who these measures serve, and who they harm.

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)
