The Shortwave Report 11/23/01 ˇLISTEN GLOBALLY!

A weekly 30 minute review of news and opinion recorded from a shortwave radio. 2 Files- broadcast quality(13.7MB) and quickdownload/streaming (3.4MB).Free to rebroadcast upon notification. With times & freqs for listening at home. Russia, Germany, Netherlands, Cuba, China.
The latest Shortwave Report (November 23) is up at the website  http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml in both broadcast quality (13.7MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (3.4MB) (29:58) 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 (Real Player, Winamp, Quicktime, iTunes, etc) you have on your computer.
This week's show features stories from the Voice of Russia, Radio Deutsche Welle, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and China Radio International.
From Russia- a world press review from Tuesday night, concerning the problems in forming a new government in Afghanistan.
From Germany- a press review from Wednesday night when Germany had been chosen as the site for the deliberations on the future of Afghanistan.
From Netherlands- an interview with women in Kabul about the future of women in Afghanistan; Argentina drops charges against the former President on illegal weapons sales; in Columbia, right-wing paramilitaries release the 6 mayors they had kidnapped.
From Cuba- many nations are trying to prevent a complete breakdown of the Peace Process in Columbia; the Washington Post critiques the current US presidential power grab; the US bombardment of Al-Jazeeda could mark a turning point in war reporting; British newspapers are commenting that the hawks are gaining the upper hand in Washington.
From China- at the UN China calls for the greater protection of children in armed conflicts; China opposes the sale of submarines to Taiwan; all 35 foreign demonstrators in support of FaLaGong are removed from the country in 24 hours.
All that plus times and frequencies for listening at home. 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.

foreign ideas, alien philosophies and competitive values. For a nation
that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open
market is a nation that is afraid of its people." John F Kennedy
