Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (October 24) 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- India successfully launched a lunar orbiting spacecraft, joining China and Japan in the search for resources. Iran is angry that it did not win a non-permanent seat on the UN Security Council. A review of the upcoming summit on the global financial crisis. Iran, Russia, and Qatar are discussing the formation of an OPEC style cartel for natural gas. Fresh on the real estate market is a secret network of underground tunnels 30 meters beneath the streets of London.
From NETHERLANDS- Radio Netherlands has announced that it will eliminate shortwave broadcasts to North America on October 26. The decision is based on their surveys that find very few listeners in N America. If you ever listen to RN on shortwave, please let them know- by email to  letters@rnw.nl or send them a letter to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, PO Box 222, 1200JG, Hilversum, The Netherlands.
A representative from the World Food Program discusses the extreme food shortage in North Korea, and how being removed from the US list of terrorist nations is affecting the nation. England has ruled that residents of the Chagos Islands in the Indian Ocean, who were forcibly removed to build US military bases, may not return home.
From CUBA- Four weeks ago I reported that the US Military plans to station active troops in the US to control civil unrest- the ACLU is now demanding that information be made public. The World Wildlife Foundation has released a report showing that climate change is happening much faster than previously predicted. Canada's renowned water crusader, Maude Barlow, has been appointed Senior Water Advisor to the United Nations President. A group of activists have launched a hunger strike to commemorate Brad Will, an Indymedia journalist murdered in Oaxaca Mexico 2 years ago.
From RUSSIA- An international conference to make peace between Russia and Georgia laid the blame for the recent wars at the feet of Georgia's President. The Bush administration will not close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, despite national and international demands.

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 < feed://www.radio4all.net/responder.php/podcast/podcast.xml?series=outFarpress+presents > 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)
