NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
     This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Sputnik Radio.
     From JAPAN-  An update on the aftermath of two strong earthquakes in southwestern Japan- there have been more than 1000 aftershocks and nearly 40,000 people remain in evacuation centers. Australia will build 12 new submarines with the assistance of France. The US defense department complained that China wanted to impose too many restrictions on foreign ships and aircraft in its territories in a new "Freedom of Navigation" report.
     From CUBA- An update on the aftermath of the massive earthquake in Ecuador which affected 1 million people. Two reports on the unresolved story of the 43 students disappeared in Mexico in 2014- 3 federal agents have been identified as involved in the torture and assumed murders- thousands continue to protest the official story in Mexico City. Some Brazilians continue to support President Dilma Rousseff in her ongoing impeachment battle.
      From GERMANY- A solar powered airplane reached California on its voyage around the world. More than 170 countries signed a groundbreaking deal on climate change in Paris- hopefully it will come into effect by 2020. There were protests in Turkey to defend journalists who wrote that Erdogan's government supplied weapons to Islamic militants in Syria. German Chancellor Merkel visited Turkey where she avoided criticizing the crackdown on media. Protestors were attacked by police in Egypt over a deal with Saudi Arabia, and in Germany when citizens opposed to the US-Europe trade deal, the TTIP, took to the streets before President Obama arrived. In Austria, the far-right Freedom Party came out leading in the first round of elections, and then the Parliament passed tough new asylum laws to stop the flow of refugees from the Middle East and Central Asia.
      From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Cian Westmoreland, a US Airforce technician who helped build the secret drone program based in Afghanistan. Cian and several other drone operators have been giving testimony to the British Parliament about the effect drone warfare is having in the declared and undeclared wars in Islamic nations.
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)
