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, Spanish National Radio, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- The Japanese Prime Minister Abe sent a special advisor to speak with a Republican senator about Japanese government worries over President-elect Trump's policies. Major emitters of greenhouse gases have called on Trump to honor the Paris agreement on climate change. The hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica remains at the same level as the average for the past decade.
From CUBA- As President Obama tours Europe for the last time, massive protests and riots broke out in Greece. Obama asked Congress for increased war funding for fighting ISIL and Afghanistan, just days after the UN announced it is investigating US airstrikes that killed 32 mostly civilians in Afghanistan. The International Criminal Court announced that the US military and CIA may be guilty of carrying out war crimes in Afghanistan. The US has criticized a new measure by the Israeli regime to legalize illegal settlements built on Palestinian land.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the new Colombian peace deal, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, and the UN conference on Climate Change being held in Morocco. In Colombia, after the peace accord referendum failed, the opposing sides met and created a new proposal to end the 55 year long war. Julian Assange faced questioning by Swedish prosecutors at the Ecuadorian embassy in London. Chelsea Manning has asked President Obama to commute her remaining sentence to the time she has already served. The UN Climate Change talks in Morocco are focusing on implementing agreements reached in Paris in light of ever increasing global temperatures.
From RUSSIA- On Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi interviewed Dr.Jill Stein, the Green presidential candidate. She disputes blame for the Trump victory, and points out why she thinks Clinton was the wrong candidate for the Democrats. She speaks about the effect Trump's climate change denial might have on the environment, but points out that he did not start bad climate policies, they have been underway for decades. She mentions recent local environmental victories and calls for a unified struggle against assaults on the climate. She says it is important to remember the Richard Nixon administration and how that drove the people to create the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and womens rights, and led to the end of the Vietnam War despite the spurious leaders in Washington.

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)
