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 Japan, Spanish National Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- The upper house of the Japanese Diet approved a set of Security Bills, while daily demonstrations continued outside. Foliage and soil contaminated with radiation washed into a river in Fukushima prefecture. The WorldWide Fund for Nature released a new study showing a 49% decline in marine species between 1970 and 2012. Following a party vote, Australian PM Tony Abbott gave up his post to Malcolm Turnbull, who is seen by most as a far more liberal politician.
From SPAIN- While the press has been reporting on the refugee crisis in Europe, they have failed to discuss the geopolitical cause of the huge migrations. And they do not cover how the international arms industry sees the Middle East as a growth market.
From GERMANY- Four chronological reports on the refugee crisis in Europe- Saturday saw open arms in Germany that closed a bit with border controls on Sunday; On Monday there was a indecisive summit in Brussels, and by Wednesday Hungarian police were beating refugees back at the Serbian border. A new ceasefire in eastern Ukraine held for over a week, followed by Ukraine expanding sanctions against Russian companies, lawmakers, and journalists. Russia made a direct offer to John Kerry to discuss with the US the apparent Russian military buildup in Syria. Turkish counter-terrorist police raided a news agency for printing a photo of the President.
From RUSSIA- We will conclude with Sputnik Radio. Afshin Rattansi interviews US journalist Chase Madar about human rights leaders and organizations becoming weaponized- that is, supporting warfare, especially targeted assassinations by drone strikes, if human rights might be improved by regime change.

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)

"War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group know what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses."
--Major General Smedley Butler, USMC, 1933
