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 Japan, China Radio International, Radio Havana Cuba, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- A plan has been presented to seal off the damaged reactors at Fukushima by building a sarcophagus around them rather than removing the nuclear fuel. The Washington Post says that President Obama is considering changes to the US nuclear weapons policy. The US announced plans to deploy a new advanced missile system in South Korea and North Korea made threats.
From CHINA- China strongly urged the US not to install the THAD missiles in South Korea as they will further destabilize the region. A UN arbitration panel in the Netherlands ruled that the Philippines have rights to the South China Sea claimed by China- China says that the ruling is invalid and a conspiracy, and that it will not relinquish its claim. The solar powered airplane has reached Cairo, nearly completing its global flight.
From CUBA- Indigenous communities in Honduras have voted overwhelming opposition to the hydro-electric dam in their region- opposition to this dam led to the murder of Berta Caceres and numerous other activists. US state and federal spending on prisons grew at three times the rate of spending on schools over the last three decades. Black Panther Russell Maroon Shoatz won a reprieve after spending 22 years in solitary confinement in a Pennsylvania prison.
From GERMANY- NATO is increasing aid to the Afghan military by 1 billion dollars, while increasing troops in Poland and the Baltic states. Germany says it will recall troops from Turkey if lawmakers continue to be barred from the country. The new British Prime Minister is Theresa May who has named some of her cabinet. The EU criticized a new Israeli law regulating human rights organizations. The Iraqi Prime Minister fired 3 security officials after a bombing killed nearly 300 people last week, while the US announced plans to send more troops to Iraq.
From RUSSIA- George Galloway interviewed Iraqi dissident DR Kamil Mahdi about the recently released Chilcot report on the British role in the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Dr Mahdi says that life in Iraq is worse now than ever, though few are sorry to see Saddam gone. The daily danger in Iraq is intense, the country is being split apart by outside forces, and the average people reject the sectarian division. He blames the occupation for the suffering, and points out that the report avoids explaining why the occupation happened. He says Iraqis want Tony Blair put on trial, and reparations for the destruction of their country.

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)
