NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-

This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, and Sputnik Radio.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes provides an update on the political turmoil in Catalonia. After the regional parliament invoked independence from Spain, PM Rajoy activated Article 155 which allowed him to dissolve the Catalan government. President Puigdemont retreated to Belgium, while Madrid announced a local election to be held Dec 21. Barcelona mayor Ada Calou commented on the situation, calling the federal actions a coup. Spain's Attorney General has pressed charges of rebellion and sedition against 20 alleged leaders of the independence movement. An arrest warrant has been issued for President Puigdemont and most Euro leaders have spurned the independence movement.
From CUBA-At the UN General Assembly only the US and Israel voted against a resolution condemning the US economic blockade of Cuba. A Viewpoint on the release of around 1800 classified documents linked to the assassination of John F Kennedy- a number of the texts expose the US governments plans to justify an open military aggression to Cuba, using terrorist actions. US military forces are conducting a nuclear war drill called "Global Thunder" to prepare the US nuclear command center for possible war.
From JAPAN- South Korea and China will meet to discuss responses to North Korea and the THAAD missiles installed by the US in South Korea. Japanese President Abe met with the NATO leader agreeing that all nations should enforce sanctions against North Korea. A former North Korean diplomat suggested that the NATO bombing of Libya prompted North Korea to accelerate nuclear and missile developments as deterrents.
From RUSSIA- On his program Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi interviewed American journalist and historian Dr Gareth Porter. Gareth dismisses the alleged use of Sarin gas by Assad forces in Syria. He says that Trump's threats of attacking North Korea are the most worrying aspect of US foreign policy. He says that the US misses the days when Yeltsin was their lapdog, working to push NATO to the borders of Russia.

There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line -

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at  http://www.mediageek.net/sound/2006/mg100606-64k.mp3

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)
