This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and NHK Japan.
From GERMANY- The Peruvian presidential election was narrowly won by former World Bank executive Pedro Kuczynski. There was a large German protest against US drone strikes controlled at a US Air Force base, while NATO decided to add more troops in the Baltic states and Poland. The EU naval force got a UN okay to patrol off the Libyan coast. The row worsened between the German parliament and Turkey over the Armenian genocide. A poll found that 40% of Germans thought muslims should be prevented from migrating to their country. In Paris union led protests have continued to be violent.
From SPAIN- With the Brexit vote a week away, Alison Hughes reports on a survey on public support for the EU among various members. Then the Irish Times ran a profile on Arnaldo Otegi, the Basque separatist leader recently released from Spanish prison.
From CUBA- The former Chilean military officer accused of murdering Victor Jara in 1973 is being tried for related crimes. 2 stories on the political battles in Brazil. The Organization of American States is debating the rights of indigenous people, the political situation in Venezuela, and Argentina's claim to the Malvinas Islands. Venezuelan President Maduro says a recall vote will not be held until January 2017. The Israeli military has been demolishing houses in the occupied West Bank, and then cut water supplies to major areas in the north of the West Bank.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi and Jeremy Scahill make comparisons between the mass murders in Orlando Florida and those perpetrated by US drone strikes in numerous nations around the world. Then former MP Lembit Opik joins in to discuss gun control in the US, and how Google publicly backs the controversial Trans Pacific Trade Partnership.
From JAPAN- The Japanese Defense Forces became aroused when a Chinese naval vessel temporarily entered Japanese waters- China responded that the strait is used for international navigation. Talks in Austria failed to produce a ban on nuclear weapon testing. Then a report on the number of nuclear weapons currently in stock around the world.

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)
