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

This week's show features stories from China Radio International, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and Sputnik Radio.
From CHINA- China has asked the US to respect laws and promote peace, rather than tension, in the South China Sea- this follows a close pass by a US Navy destroyer Chinese territorial waters. The Chinese government says that it wants to continue to allow Taiwan independence. China sent its chief nuclear envoy to North Korea prior to an expected missile launch later this month
From JAPAN- Japan is reacting strongly to the anticipated North Korean missile launch, sending warships with orders to shoot down any missiles. Citizens living near the devastated Fukushima nuclear power plant want the central government to clean up radioactive fallout in nearby forests.
From GERMANY- Researchers in Germany are moving forward on a billion dollar experiment with nuclear fusion. Despite international criticism, Australia is going ahead with deporting asylum seekers to a small Pacific island. Peace talks over the wars in Syrian collapsed in Geneva. A top US military General told the Senate that women should register for the draft like men do when they turn 18.
From CUBA- The Colombian President Santos is heading to the US to seek more funding for Plan Colombia on its 15th anniversary. Argentina's new President Marci announced huge hikes in the cost of electricity. The Bolivian Interior Minister says that the right-wing plans to intensify its dirty war before a referendum on whether President Evo Morales can run again. The US Defense department wants $13 billion for new submarines carrying nuclear missiles. The Saudi military has acknowledged that they bombed a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Yemen in October.
From RUSSIA- First headlines with Wikileaks- a German politician says that refugees should be shot at the border, and why does the press avoid criticizing the Saudi war on Yemen. Then an interview with Oliver Sprague from Amnesty International on war crimes in Yemen by the Saudi Kingdom- these crimes implicate the British and US governments who continue to supply weapons, including cluster bombs from the US.

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)
