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, Spanish National Radio, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK Japan.
From GERMANY- Tunisia passed a vote of no confidence in parliament for the US trained Prime Minister Habib Essid. Turkish President Erdogan wants to institute constitutional changes to the country. The Austrian Chancellor called on the EU to end membership talks with Turkey.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the ongoing crackdown in Turkey- this includes comments about Turkish/Russian partnership by Princeton professor Stephen F Cohen on the John Batchelor podcast. She then describes the new US airstrikes in Libya that were requested by one of the three competing governments in the country.
From RUSSIA- Ex-British MP George Galloway interviewed Dr Russell Foster of Kings College about the future of the EU following the Brexit vote. They discuss what has gone wrong with the EU, whether other countries will also exit, and if there is the possibility of reforming the union in a way that is more democratically based rather than corporate. This is the best debate I have heard of the future of Europe.
From CUBA- In the lead up to the Olympic games, thousands of Brazilians are in the street protesting coup imposed President Temer. Wikileaks released emails from Hillary Clinton that show that she ignored advice about the 2009 coup in Honduras and helped push the elected president out of office.
From JAPAN- China expressed strong dissatisfaction with a Japanese White Paper on the military tension in the South China Sea. President Obama has made it clear that he will push for congressional approval of the Trans-Pacific-Partnership free trade deal after the election in November, since all Presidential candidates have stated opposition to the plan.

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)
