NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-

This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Sputnik Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From JAPAN- 3 reports from the startup of the Sendai nuclear power plant in southwest Japan- despite protests one of the reactors was started in a test phase, with commercial operation expected in September. The Fukushima Fisheries Federation conditionally agreed to allow discharges of underground water from the reactors into the Pacific Ocean, as long as rumors of contamination were made illegal.
From RUSSIA- Sophie Shevarnadze interviewed Mikhail Gorbachev about why the Cold War is being reheated, and why the US chooses to increase the risk of a nuclear war. Complete interview-  http://www.rt.com/shows/sophieco/215851-gorbachev-us-ukraine-war/
From GERMANY- 3 stories about Turkey- on Saturday the US sent jet fighters and troops to a Turkish base to bomb Syria. The US Consulate in Istanbul was attacked on Monday, as was a police station. The Turkish President Erdogan vowed not to back down from his military campaign against Kurdish militants. The EU approved 2.4 billion Euros to help countries cope with the migrant crisis- 124,000 migrants have reached the shore in Europe so far this year.
From SPAIN- A Spanish press review covering special treatment for Catalan, several stories about migration, and the 70th anniversary of the US dropping atomic bombs on Nagasaki.
From CUBA- The EU Foreign Minister said that migrants pose a threat to Europe and must be sent home, and migrant tensions flare on a Greek island. At a meeting of ALBA, the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America, calls were made for Latin American unification- Venezuelan President Maduro accused 2 US intelligence agents of promoting violence in the country. There was more violence in Mexico. The Saudi bombing raids on Yemen continue to kill civilians, with no let up in sight.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -

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)

"I believe in the cosmos. All of us are linked to the cosmos. Look at the sun. If there is no sun, then we cannot exist. So nature is my god. To me, nature is sacred. Trees are my temples and forests are my cathedrals."
--Mikhail Gorbachev, 1997
