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 Spanish National Radio, NHK Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, and Sputnik Radio.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes begins by reporting on the new South Korean President Moon jae-in's desire to change the policy with North Korea by dialogue and negotiations. The White House announced new sanctions against Iran, two years after earlier sanctions were lifted by the former administration- this followed Israeli PM Netanyahu criticizing the US-Russian ceasefire in Syria, saying Israel might need to attack Iranian and Hezbollah bases in Syria. The state of emergency was extended in Turkey for the fourth time, with President Erdogan believing that cleric and US businessman Fetullah Gulen was behind the attempted coup a year ago.
From JAPAN- I have seen numerous articles in the media saying that increased releases of radioactive water from the Fukushima nuclear power plant into the Pacific Ocean were about to happen- TEPCO claims that the media misinterpreted statements and tried to calm enraged fishermen. Japan has an action plan to help people in the US understand that Japanese investment in the US has created many jobs. Philippine President Dutarte asked Congress to extend martial law in the south, where he plans to create an autonomous Muslim region as a peace settlement. Global Witness reports that 2016 was the deadliest year on record for environmental and land rights activists, with 60% in central and south America. The US warned that it may impose economic sanctions on Venezuela unless Maduro calls off an election to rewrite the country's constitution.
From CUBA- Venezuelan President Maduro called a defense council session to discuss the US threats. Cuban officials attended a ceremony commemorating the Sandinista uprising in Nicaragua. Cuba announced plans to increase the use of solar energy in the country. The demonstrations at the G20 summit in Hamburg were the largest ever and the subsequent riots caused 12 million Euros in damage.
From RUSSIA- On his program Going Underground, host Afshin Ratannsi spoke with Medea Benjamin, founder of Code Pink. They discussed the controversial arms sales by the US and UK to Saudi Arabia, which is creating a massacre of the people of Yemen. Medea criticizes the media for focusing on the alleged Trump and Putin conspiracy, diverting attention from so many other crises.

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)

"We have to re-invent socialism. It can't be the kind of socialism that we saw in the Soviet Union, but it will emerge as we develop new systems that are built on cooperation, not competition."
- Hugo Chavez
