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, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK Japan.
From GERMANY- Germany and India have committed to comply with the Paris Agreement On Climate Change. Two reports on the Russian/Syrian attacks in Aleppo on rebel forces which the US and UK said were war crimes. The US will send 600 more troops to Iraq, Turkey is extending the state of emergency, and Greece cut pensions in new austerity measures. Two mosques were fire-bombed by German xenophobes in Dresden, and French President Hollande promised to dismantle the refugee camp in Calais by the end of the year.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Dr. Suliman Alshahmy, the founder of the Libyan stock market. The discuss NATO attacks on Libya five years ago, which were said to save civilians caught in a civil war in Benghazi. Suliman describes how the standard of living has been destroyed in the richest country in Africa, and how Gaddafi's plan to unite African currencies may have been a reason for the devastation. Suliman responds to Hillary Clinton's pride in killing Gaddafi, and the EU returning refugees from many countries to Libya.
From CUBA-On Monday the Colombian government and FARC rebels signed a historic peace deal after 4 years of negotiations in Havana. Bolivian President Evo Morales criticized the US Presidential debate as a show, saying that elected Presidents are ruled by bankers and businessmen. The Nicaraguan Vice President blasted a US congressional bill to prevent her country from getting international loans. A spokesperson for the Russian Foreign Ministry rebuked statements by the US Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, on Russian and Syrian attacks on rebels in Aleppo.
From JAPAN- Japan continues to call at the UN for the total abolition of nuclear weapons. The US Defense Secretary Ash Carter said the US will sustain nuclear deterrence with a $108 billion over 5 years- President Obama has approved a nuclear weapon modernization plan estimated at $1 trillion while seeking a world free of nuclear weapons. Members of the IAEA have criticized North Korea for its nuclear and missile programs. The US congress voted to override Obama's veto of a bill allowing families of victims of the 911 attacks to sue Saudi Arabia- the Saudis threatened to sell off $750 billion worth of US bonds if the bill becomes law.

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)

"I won't be a party to a conspiracy to mobilize the Arabs against the Persians. Only the forces of colonialism benefit from such a conspiracy. I won't be a party to a conspiracy that splits Islam into two - Shiite Islam and Sunni Islam - mobilizing Sunni Islam against Shiite Islam."
-Muammar Gaddafi, 2007
