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 Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From JAPAN- In Canada Justin Trudeau was sworn in as Prime Minister, chose a cabinet equally divided between men and women, and will review the Canadian acceptance of the Trans Pacific Partnership. The US government plans to continue the provocative act of sending warships into areas of the South China Sea that China considers territorial waters. China blames the US for the failure of ASEAN members to adopt a joint declaration.
From GERMANY- It was revealed that more VW vehicles shipped to the US employ software to alter pollution levels when tested. An update on the refugee crisis, where Germany has erected so-called transit zones along borders, criticized as resembling prisons. Amnesty International accused Shell Oil of lying about cleaning up oil spills in Nigeria. Two reports on the election in Turkey which saw the ruling party win with 49%- there were fights between police and Kurdish voters who questioned the election results. Elections observers say the voting was held in a climate of fear with journalists being monitored.
From SPAIN- A more in-depth report on the Turkish elections, which resulted in President Erdogan maintaining his authoritarian rule. Critics fear that he will expand executive orders and continue the pre-election crack down on activists and any media which questioned his tactics. There are questions that German Chancellor Merkel backed Erdogan to ensure entrance into the EU and to help in keeping refugees from reaching northern Europe.
From CUBA- 400 young activists in Ecuador met to discuss environmental issues and make proposals to counteract climate change. A Mexican group called the Pagan Sect Of The Mountain bombed several empty buses near Mexico City to protest the destruction of nature. In Latin America 1 out of every 3 media workers murdered occurred in Mexico. Cuba presented a draft resolution at the UN calling for a global fight against the use of mercenaries. Over 2600 Palestinians were shot and wounded by Israeli forces in October. Then a Viewpoint on the importance of the second round of the Argentinian Presidential elections- it says that outside forces are trying to unseat the current Leftist leaders with candidates who accept neo-liberalism throughout Latin America.

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)
