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 Spanish National Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK Japan, and Sputnik Radio.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on a UN report on the deaths in Yemen caused by airstrikes from the Saudi-led coalition. At one point the UN blacklisted the coalition for killing and maiming children in Yemen, but Ban ki Moon removed them from the list after being extorted by Saudi Arabia. Then she reports on how the US continues to supply cluster bombs to Saudi Arabia despite global opposition to their use.
From GERMANY- The German cabinet approved a plan to expand the German Naval role in the EU Mediterranean Sea operation. The first democratically elected president of Egypt has been sentenced to life imprisonment, while Turkey arrested a representative of Reporters Without Borders and other journalists. The UN announced that a record number of refugees, 65 million, are displaced today, and half of them are children. Sweden approved stricter rules on asylum seekers, and the UN released a report about the fate of refugee children in Germany.
From CUBA- Two stories on the murder of 9 people by Mexican police in Oaxaca at protests by striking teacher demanding educational reform. Two US drone strikes in Afghanistan killed at least 25 people. Sweden has asked to question Julian Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy in London where he has been holed up for 4 years. Tens of thousands of Japanese citizens have demonstrated against the heavy US military presence on the island of Okinawa.
From JAPAN- The Japanese government want talks soon to review the status of US troops in the country. The president of TEPCO has admitted that the company concealed reactor meltdowns at the devastated Fukushima power plant for two months, after receiving instructions from the Prime Minister's office. Eight members of NATO are taking part in an anti-submarine naval drill off the coast of Norway because of fears of Russia.
From RUSSIA- George Galloway interviewed Dr. Tomasz Perscionek about the growing anti-Russian sentiment in western media, and how it relates to the expansion of NATO. Since Russia is now a capitalistic state, how can it be such a threat? Wasn't NATO created to stop the spread of communism? Is there a fear of it not economically stumbling as it did under Yeltsin?

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)
