NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
     This week's show features stories from NHK Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, Sputnik Radio, and Radio Havana Cuba.
     From JAPAN-  After the G20 summit Japanese Prime Minister Abe and Chinese President Xi Jinping spoke together for the first time in a year, saying they would try to improve ties. The New York Times reported that Obama is likely to abandon his proposal to ban first-strike use of nuclear weapons. Obama and South Korean President Park Geun-hye agreed on the importance of deploying the advanced missile system despite Chinese opposition
       From GERMANY The German government has been criticizing the Turkish crackdown on journalists, and this increased with the Turkish seizure of DW footage this week. There was a new wave of Turkish tanks, ground forces and artillery into Syria, and Erdogan wants a no-fly zone in northern Syria. Turkish police continue to arrest more citizens suspected of involvement in the attempted coup in July. According to the UN, nearly 50 million children have been uprooted worldwide, with 28 million driven from their homes because of war.
     From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the migration situation in Europe. The instability in Libya has made it a hub for  human trafficking mafias. The French town of Calais has seen local protests about the migrant camp, demanding it be torn down. Recent German elections saw the rise of the new far-right anti-immigrant political party, called Alternative For Germany, or AFD, which many see as the beginning of the end for Angela Merkel's rule.
       From RUSSIA- George Galloway and Gayatri interviewed Dr. Juan Grigera from University College London on the shifting politics in Latin America. The leftist movement, named the pink tide, which had grown to almost every nation in South America is rapidly vanishing. Why is this happening and what does it portend?
      From CUBA- Brazilians opposing the ouster of Dilma Rousseff have been facing military police repression. After the G20 summit in China Obama visited Laos where he offered some restoration funds but no apology for the years of intense bombing. Thousands staged a demonstration in the Hague against the visit by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.
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)
