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, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- 3 executives of TEPCO, the operators of the destroyed Fukushima nuclear power plant, have been indicted on charges of negligence- for failing to take safety measures in case of a tsunami. The UN Security Council voted to tighten sanctions on North Korea following its nuclear test and missile launch. At the UN Human Rights Council, North Korea responded that it will never be bound by resolutions that criticize its human rights record, comparing human rights issues in Europe and the US.
From SPAIN- The refugee crisis in Europe continues to worsen, with most countries wanting to bar entry to people escaping wars. At the Macedonia border police and refugees ended up in a riot this week. Parts of Spain have created facilities for the immigrants but they have not gotten through.
From CUBA- In Mexico federal and independent prosecutors launched new investigations into the fate of the 43 disappeared students. Former Brazilian President Lula de Silva said he would run for president if asked, and gave full support to the current president Dilma Rousseff. At the UN Disarmament conference Cuba said that all people have the right to live without the threat of nuclear weapons. 2 US drone strikes in Afghanistan resulted in at least 9 deaths. Ban ki Moon has condemned Saudi Arabia for defying calls to halt air strikes on Yemen. In Yemen thousands of people protested the US backed Saudi bombing campaign- 750,000 Europeans petitioned the EU to place an arms embargo on Saudi Arabia. The next negotiations in the Syrian ceasefire process have been delayed for a week.
From RUSSIA- Sophie Shevarnadze interviewed Alastair Crooke, former EU policy adviser and MI-6 operative, about the ceasefire in Syria. Is the goal a time out to restock the militaries? Are the so-called moderate rebels doing anything more than passing weapons on to the more radical groups? What goals do Saudi Arabia and Turkey have for the Syrian nation?

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)
