Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (June 27) is up at the website
 http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (4.9MB) (28:59)
(NEW! If you have access to Audioport.org there is a higher quality version posted up there {26.7MB}  http://www.audioport.org/index.php?op=producer-info&uid=904&nav=&)

This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- The earthquake in China in May is estimated to have taken 80,000 lives. N Korea is being removed from the US list of state sponsors of terror. China plans to clean up trash left by climbers and tourists at Mount Everest. The EU approved new financial and travel sanctions against Iran for its alleged nuclear development. Iran's army threatened an awe-inspiring response to an attack by the US or Israel. China launched an international design competition for solar-powered schools in rural areas. China says it will stick to a sustainable energy policy. OPEC members do not see a need to increase oil output, saying the soaring prices are a result of trade speculators who shifted their focus from currency to commodities.
From NETHERLANDS- Oxfam is reporting that the advent of biofuels is responsible for 30 percent of the increase in food prices globally, or 30 million people being pushed into poverty. Oxfam just released a report called "From Poverty To Power"- the author is interviewed and defines what forms of poverty the world is facing today.
From CUBA- Despite a cease-fire, fighting continues in the Gaza Strip, and the US will not lift the boycott on the Palestinian government. NATO forces in Afghanistan shelled rebels in Pakistan on Sunday. The US is building a 40 acre prison in Afghanistan but claims it will not send Guantanamo prisoners there.
From RUSSIA- A commentary on the US government's development of Afghanistan's army and police force, and US contractors defrauding the government.
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line at- http://www.campusprogress.org/soundvision/780/big-stories-shortwaves

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at  http://radio.mediageek.net

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.
This program will be aired on Friday afternoon at 4:30pm (PDST) 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://www.freakradio.org >Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am.(PDST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from <  http://www.radio4all.net/podcast.php/.xml?series=outFarpress%20presents > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)
Check out the amazing streams at <  http://www.radicalradio.org >
And Radio For Peace International at <  http://www.rfpi.org >

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)
