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, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Sputnik Radio, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From SPAIN- Since 1987, Spain has celebrated the anniversary of Columbus' arrival in the Americas as Dia de la Hispanidad or National Day. Here is a press review of the day.
From JAPAN- The governor of Okinawa revoked permits for the relocation of a US military base. The Sendai nuclear power plant has started up its second reactor. A peace rally in Ankara, Turkey was attacked by 2 suicide bombs, leaving 97 dead and hundreds injured. Anti-government protests followed, along with a crackdown on any protests or critical media. Russian President Putin denounced the US delivery of tons of weapons to rebels in Syria. A Swiss based international organization is offering to investigate why the US bombed an occupied hospital in Afghanistan staffed by Doctors Without Borders. Japanese farmers are worried about their fate if the TransPacific Partnership is implemented.
From GERMANY- Hundreds of thousands of Germans took to the streets to protest the free trade agreement between the US and the EU, called the Trans Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP. Two stories about the refugee crisis, with Germany controlling its borders and the Parliament to vote on new asylum laws. Then a series of stories on the rapidly increasing violence between Israelis and Palestinians. The Taliban say they are leaving Kunduz in Afghanistan. International investigators determined that flight MH17 was shot down by a Russian made missile but not who fired it.
From RUSSIA- A press review on the MH17 news reports, and the story that a Russian jet had been shot down over Turkey which later proved to be false propaganda.
From CUBA- A report on the Second People's Summit on Climate Change held in Bolivia. Venezuelan President Maduro has denounced right-wing attacks on the electrical substations and cultural events. Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff accused opponents of plotting a coup. Chilean President Michelle Bachelet announced the start of a possible new Constitution.

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)
