Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (April 11) is up at the website  http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml in both broadcast quality 13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (3.3MB) (29:12) 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.
This program will be aired on Friday evening at 7pm on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via  http://www.kzyx.org
There are several other streams that work better-  http://members.cruzio.com/~frsc/ Freak Radio Santa Cruz (96.3fm) streams this program on Friday at 5:35pm (PST) and on Monday at 9amPST.

This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Spanish National Radio, the Voice Of Russia, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From China- From around the planet, nations keep expressing their opposition to the invasion of Iraq. Many feel that this weeks American murders of journalists is a war crime. Then, the world view on the importance of the UN leading post-war reconstruction.
From Netherlands- From a Dutch press review, the history of retired US General J Garner, a key player in US post-war planning. Dozens of prominent Cuban dissidents received severe jail sentences for undermining the Cuban government. Then an interview with a Belgian doctor on the medical crisis in Iraq, and the American attack on an ambulance. Then a report on the murder of journalists in Bagdhad.
From Spain- The deadly American assault on journalists in Bagdhad, including a Spanish reporter, led the staff of SNR to make a demand for a full accounting of the incident. Then the Spanish Prime Minister and Foreign Minister were rudely snubbed by the Spanish press over the war and the incident. A Spanish press review on the war and the US attempt to eliminate witnesses by killing journalists. The EU has approved the entry of ten new members.
From Russia- A report on the deadly US attack on Russian diplomats and journalists leaving Iraq last weekend.
From Cuba- War reporters fear that the murder of journalists in Bagdhad could mean the end of independent witnessing of war. In the worst incident of friendly fire in the war, 17 Kurdish and American soldiers, and a BBC translator were bombed into the next world by US fighter jets. Israeli missle raids continue in Palestine, along with a Right-wing Israeli groups bombing of a Palestinian school.
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. 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!
