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, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and Spanish National Radio.
From JAPAN- Japan is going to follow the Paris Agreement despite the Trump withdrawal- Japan doubled renewable energy sources in the past 10 years. At the first ever UN conference on Oceans, delegates criticized the US for leaving the Paris Agreement. Another nuclear reactor has been started in Japan, bringing the total to 5. New South Korean President Moon jae-in did not criticize North Korea for its missile programs at an annual Memorial Day ceremony, a stark change from his predecessor. Several Asian defense officials have held back criticism of China's maritime activities in the South China Sea.
From CUBA- In Honduras, a number of international investors have withdrawn support for the hydro-electric power plant that Berta Caceres was assassinated for opposing. Brazilian President Temer is being further investigated for corruption. UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has called for Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian territories on the 50th anniversary of the 1967 invasion- so has Bernie Sanders. In Syria US backed forces have begun battling for the city of Raqqa after killing 21 civilians over the weekend.
From RUSSIA- On the program Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi heard press reviews from Abdel Bari Atwan, editor of Rai-al-Youm, a pan Arabic news source. They talked about the Saudi and UAE sanctions on Qatar for maintaining good relations with Iran and Hezbollah. Then a story about mercenary CEO Eric Prince, formerly of Blackwater, who suggested the US a Viceroy in Afghanistan.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reported on the terror attacks in Tehran, a rare event in Iran- this followed Trump's accusations that Iran supports terrorism, which Robert Fisk contradicted in the Independent. Alison then describes how and why 5 Arab states have cut diplomatic relations with Qatar, quoting an essay written by Patrick Cockburn in the Independent.

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)
