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 World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and Spanish National Radio.
From JAPAN- At the Climate Change Conference in Morocco, the UN weather agency said that 2015 was the hottest year on record, emphasizing the need to immediately implement the Paris Accords. Before the election Donald Trump made threats about US military support of Japan, now the State Department is trying to dispel fears of major policy changes. People in Japan are worried about the nuclear weapon policy Trump described in his campaign. Japan, like the rest of the international press, reported on the large number of anti-Trump protests taking place in the US.
From CUBA- A review of international responses to the election of Donald Trump.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi spoke with legendary filmmaker and documentarian John Pilger on the outcome of the US elections. Pilger says the result did not surprise him. He said the liberal class wanted to maintain a corrupt war-mongering status quo, and the majority of voters sought change. He compares the shock surprise to the Brexit vote and talks about who funded each candidate. He says journalism has become an echo chamber for the establishment, and denies that Russia and Assange helped Trump to victory. He talks about the neo-conservative influence on Hillary, and the silence of the media on the expanding US involvement in wars around the world.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes covered some Spanish press and the Podemos political party responses to the unexpected Trump victory. Then she reports on Daniel Ortega's election victory in Nicaragua.

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)
