NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
 http://npaper-wehaa.com/boulder-weekly/2015/03/26/#?article=2478097

This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- The relocation of the US military base in Okinawa continues despite damaging coral reefs in the seabed. Nuclear regulators have found further problems with the safety inspections of a fast-breeder reactor next to the Sea of Japan. The proposed Chinese Asian Infrastructure bank will prioritize the needs of developing countries.
From CUBA- There will be an alternative Peoples Summit alongside the upcoming Summit of the Americas in Panama. The US Treasury Department removed dozens of Cuban companies from a trade blacklist, but the Cuban press questioned the validity of the action. The UK has decided to increase its military presence on the Malvinas Islands, also known as the Falklands.
From GERMANY- Saudi Arabia and regional allies have begun bombing Yemen, while the US has returned to bombing in Iraq and to retaining 10,000 troops in Afghanistan. Two stories on the meetings in Germany between the new Greek Prime Minister Tsipras and Angela Merkel.
From SPAIN- There were regional elections in the south of Spain that showed the decline of the Popular Party and the growing influence of the new party Podemos. There was a large anti-austerity march for dignity in Madrid.
From RUSSIA- There has been a week of Occupy demonstrations against Rupert Murdoch and his media empire. An interview with politician Donica McCarthy on the stranglehold that the media has on politics.

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.
TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (PST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via <  http://www.kzyx.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)
