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, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, and Sputnik Radio.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes presents an update on the political situation in Catalonia. The Catalan parliament is to reconvene next week and to form a new regional government. The pro-independence parties agreed to reelect Puigdemont as president despite the fact that he is in exile in Brussels. Not everyone agrees that he can accept without entering Spain where he will be arrested. Prime Minister Rajoy refuses to meet Puigdemont outside the country or accept that he could lead the region in exile.
From CUBA- According to the Associated Press, the FBI says it has found no evidence supporting accusations of sonic attacks on US ambassadors in Cuba. Ecuador is seeking a third country to mediate safe passage out of the UK for Julian Assange. Large protests continued in Honduras over the questionable presidential election results. The Syrian army has been battling with Israeli aircraft and rockets fired at Syrian soil.
From JAPAN- Russia says its military bases in Syria have been attacked by drones, indicating US involvement. High ranking officials from north and south Korea met in the demilitarized zone leading to a number of agreements including using dialogue to settle disputes. Japan and the US confirmed that they will maintain military pressure on North Korea despite the talks. French President Macron spoke in China praising their cooperation on climate change despite the US withdrawal from the Paris agreement.
From RUSSIA- George Galloway interviewed Professor Jude Woodward, author of "The US vs China, Asia's New Cold War." They discussed the Chinese role in the global economy, their development in foreign countries without regime change, and its goal of a multipolar world.

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)

"I don't believe there will be anyone who will use violence or who will want to provoke violence that will tarnish the irreproachable image of the Catalan independence movement as pacifist."
- Carlos Puigdemont
