This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Spanish National Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and The Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- Chinese President Hu Jintao is visiting the US and is stressing the need for mutual respect. The US and China have signed huge business deals on energy technology and established a joint clean energy research center. The UN has ended its peace mission in Nepal. The worst flooding in Australia in a hundred years has moved to the state of Victoria. Agreements on a common market were reached at the second Arab Economic Development and Social Summit.
From SPAIN- The unity of Tunisia's new coalition government has failed with instability and civil unrest continuing. The government of Lebanon collapsed due in part to the investigation of the murder of the Prime Minister's father.
From GERMANY- China has doubled its banking presence in Europe, providing convenience and relief but also worry. A Swiss whistle blowing banker handed Julian Assange confidential information about 2000 rich and famous individuals and corporations.
From CUBA- Internal US government reviews found the Wikleaks revelations have caused relatively little damage to the US abroad. The Israeli government is preparing another major settlement expansion in occupied East Jerusalem. Thousands protested in Tel Aviv against a government probe of Israeli human rights groups.
From RUSSIA- Russian oil firm Rosneft signed an agreement with BP to jointly develop oil and gas resources in the Arctic region. An analysis of the possibility of the US defaulting on its global debt, which currently stands at $45,000 per US citizen.

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 evening at 6:30pm (PST) 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.(PST)
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)
