NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
     This week's show features stories from  Radio Deutsche-Welle, NHK World Radio Japan, China Radio International, and Radio Havana Cuba.
     From GERMANY- Several stories about the changing face of the refugee crisis in Europe- Hungary, Denmark, Sweden and Germany are all enacting laws to curb immigration and deport those they consider undesirable. Large scale protests continue in Poland against the new right-wing government, while the EU investigates new anti-democratic laws. A nationwide curfew has been imposed in Tunisia to stop protests against economic strife in the starting point of the so-called Arab Spring.
     From JAPAN- Another nuclear power plant in Japan is scheduled to restart this week, after a court lifted an injunction against it. There are further problems in attempts to remove the melted fuel from the devastated Fukushima nuclear power plant. Japanese nuclear engineers are considering storing nuclear waste in tunnels beneath the seabed of the Pacific Ocean. Supporters of the Comprehensive Nuclear  Test Ban Treaty say that world powers should ratify the treaty in light of the North Korean nuclear test- the 20 year old treaty has not been ratified by the US, China, Israel, and 5 other nations. The head of US forces in the Pacific says the US will step up its freedom of navigation operation in the South China Sea.
     From CHINA- John Kerry visited China for talks on the North Korean nuclear test and disputes in the South China Sea- China says Taiwan needs to help protect the South China Sea. South Korea says it is watching for a ballistic missile test from North Korea. China and Iran have upgraded a comprehensive strategic partnership.
      From CUBA- Pope Francis will meet with parents of the missing 43 students in Mexico next month- protests about the disappearance continue in Mexico City. Mexico is having a series of forums on the legalization of marijuana. In Chile a court has ordered the government to compensate four victims of the Pinochet dictatorship. A former guard says that the CIA staged suicides at Guantanamo Bay prison. Panama is working toward a truth commission investigating the 1989 US invasion. UN Secretary General Ban ki Moon has called for an end to Israeli  settlement expansion in occupied Palestine. France plans to extend the state of emergency, and the French Justice Minister resigned in protest of plans to strip people convicted of terrorism of their citizenship.
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)
