NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
     This week's show features stories from  Sputnik Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Deutsch-Welle, and Radio Havana Cuba.
     From RUSSIA- Afshan Rattansi spoke with Naomi Klein at the UN Climate Conference in Paris. He asked her about the Leap Manifesto, a Canadian project to push governments to take significant actions to reduce climate change. It calls for 100% renewable energy for electricity in 20 years and having an entirely clean economy by 2050. The plan includes hundreds of thousands of jobs creating these changes.
     From JAPAN- The US and 3 other nations have condemned Japan for failing to respond to the International Court Of Justice on whaling. The Japanese government is stepping up activities to return Fukushima area evacuees to their communities. Two stories on the US and South Korean responses to North Korea's nuclear detonation last week- the US flew a B-52 bomber provocatively and South Korea is blaring propaganda across the border. Doctors Without Borders had a hospital treating insurgents bombed in Yemen, presumably by the Saudi air force.
     From GERMANY- Human rights activists demonstrated outside the Saudi  Embassy in Berlin on the anniversary of the first public whipping of a blogger. Several stories about Cologne where sexual assaults occurred on New Years Eve by men apparently from North Africa- the far right Pegida movement clashed with police who are trying to limit attacks on people of color. Similar protests and riots took place in other parts of Germany. Large demonstrations took place in Poland against new laws threatening democracy and media freedom. US authorities say that VW plans to recall cars inadequate. Pro-independence groups in Spain's Catalonia region are a step closer to independence.
      From CUBA- Cubans migrating to the US are on their way through Central America. The Venezuelan National Assembly saw the resignation of 3 right-wing deputies due to charges of electoral fraud. An Argentinian journalist was fired for his political opinions against the new right wing government. Sweden has called for an investigation into the killings of Palestinians by Israeli forces. A Saudi prisoner at Guantanamo for 14 years has been repatriated, while 103 others remain behind. Saudi Arabia has admitted that it has used cluster bombs in its war on Yemen.
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 
  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 < > 
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)
