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

     This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Sputnik Radio, NHK Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
     From GERMANY- The Chief Executive of VW resigned in the wake of the emissions scandal he claimed to know nothing about. Alexis Tsipras was sworn in for the second time as Prime Minister of Greece. John Kerry wants Syrian allies to persuade President Assad to quit. The next day US trained rebels crossed into Syria. The EU will provide an additional 1 billion Euros for Syrian refugees in the Middle East. 2 French warships built for Russia are going to Egypt instead.
     From RUSSIA- The US plans to place 20 more nuclear weapons in Germany, which many consider a violation of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. Around 200 US nuclear warheads remain in Europe.
     From JAPAN- Last Monday was the International Day of Peace and there were large demonstrations in Japan against the new anti-pacifist Security Bills. 2 days later there were more protests in Tokyo against the Security Bills and the restarting of a nuclear power plant. At the UN the governor of Okinawa has called for international support for his opposition to the planned new US military base in his prefecture.
      From CUBA- At the UN the US may abstain from voting in the annual Cuban resolution against the US economic blockade of the island. The Colombian government may have reached a peace agreement with FARC rebels. A Viewpoint on last month's protests in the streets of Brazil- the anti-government protests got large international coverage, but the much larger pro-government demonstrations that followed were under reported.
      From SPAIN- This Sunday, September 27 the Spanish region of Catalonia will vote for officials, but will also be making a statement about independence from the rest of Spain. Left and right parties have joined into a single secessionist platform called "Together For Yes." The elections will be a de facto referendum on independence despite federal opposition to the separation.

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)
