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 Radio Deutsche-Welle, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, and Sputnik Radio.
From GERMANY- A referendum to limit Italian offshore oil and gas drilling in the Mediterranean Sea failed. The leader of German anti-immigrant group Pegida has gone on trial for inciting racial hatred with a Facebook post. Last week I aired a report about a comedian whose ridicule of Turkish President Erdogan was defended by Chancellor Merkel- under pressure she has changed her mind.
From JAPAN- Reporters Without Borders annual ranking is out, and the overall trend is that media freedom declined sharply last year- the US ranked 41st. Two reports on the hundreds of earthquakes in southwestern Japan, including the nuclear regulators assurance that the nearby power plant is in no danger. An international weapons fair in Malaysia set new record purchases for maritime military equipment. A Chinese military airplane rescued several people from a disputed island in the South China Sea.
From CUBA- Cuba continues to condemn what it sees as an attempted coup in Brazil, part of a right-wing conspiracy against progressive Latin American policies. The foreign minister of Venezuela lashed out at foreign media for presenting her country as needing an intervention. In Argentina thousands marched against new austerity measures. Deadly earthquakes continue to hit Ecuador with many deaths and injuries. London saw 150,000 anti-austerity protestors over the weekend. 300 more people were arrested in Washington DC on Monday bringing the total to 1200 in that series of protests largely ignored in the US press. More than 500 North Africans died while attempting to reach Italy in the latest refugee catastrophe.
From RUSSIA- First a press review/commentary on the latest refugee deaths in the Mediterranean Sea. President Obama visited Saudi Arabia on his way to the UK to discuss intervention in Libya- the Saudis economically threatened the US if restitution lawsuits about 9/11 were allowed. Afshin Rattansi discusses this and regime change with former British ambassador, Peter Ford.

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)
