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 Spanish National Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and Radio Deutsche-Welle.
From SPAIN- Here is an update on the independence movement in the Catalan region of Spain. Supporters will use the regional election in September to show that the citizens endorse a referendum ballot in 2016.
From JAPAN- Workers at the Fukushima nuclear plant will attempt to remove a fuel exchanger which is blocking progress on the clean up of 566 nuclear fuel rods from one unit. US government officials responded to Japanese complaints over creating national parks where the first nuclear bombs were developed. Japanese opposition leaders are joining with labor groups to try to scrap the new self-defense security policy- citizens are also protesting on the streets.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviews John Hillary who opposes the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP. Many citizens in Europe fear allowing American businesses to preempt environmental and economic safeguards in the Eurozone.
From CUBA- 70% of US citizens want the economic blockade against Cuba lifted, and some members of Congress introduced a bill Tuesday to accomplish this. The US State Department took Cuba off its blacklist of countries failing to combat modern slavery. Peruvian police destroyed villages around illegal mines in the jungle, while Uber taxis were attacked in Mexico City. Despite agreeing to a ceasefire, Saudi led bombings in Yemen killed 120 mostly civilians in one attack, bringing the death toll to nearly 4000 according to the World Health Organization.
From GERMANY- Turkey launched air and ground attacks in Syria and Iraq, hitting both Islamic State and Kurdish bases. Since the Kurdish PKK forces are fighting the IS forces many question the real aim of the Turkish government, which also allowed US forces to use their bases for attacks on IS. Then a report on a special session of the Turkish Parliament.

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)
