NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
     This week's show features stories from  Spanish National Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, China Radio International, Radio Havana Cuba, and Radio Deutsche-Welle.
     From SPAIN- Yanis Varoufakis, the former Greek Economic Minister, spoke in Madrid about his campaign called Democracy In Europe 2025. It is a pan-European movement to counter the current EU austerity programs.
     From JAPAN-  The IAEA has been holding a conference to discuss nuclear safety. The operators of the devastated Fukushima nuclear power plant failed to admit for 3 months that there were 3 nuclear meltdowns in 2011. The US admitted that it received a peace proposal from North Korea before its latest nuclear test, but put off responding to it. The two Koreas made serious threats to each other this week.
     From CHINA- China again refutes the US claim that China threatens freedom of navigation in the South China Sea. China argues that the missile system the US plans to install in South Korea will impede Chinese security interests. China may go to the World Trade Org over US probes into Chinese exporting of tires.
      From CUBA- President Obama announced a plan to close the military prison in Guantanamo. In Argentina, workers are protesting lowered wages and layoffs. Parents of the 43 disappeared students are marching across northern Mexico. Spain's progressive parties met to form a pact. The NSA has been spying on UN Secretary General Ban ki Moon. Saudi Arabia continues bombing residential areas of Yemen.
      From GERMANY- Amnesty International says that protection of human rights hit a new low in 2015. Violent acts against refugees continue in Germany, while the government has begun returning refugees to Afghanistan. Tighter border controls were instituted in Austria and other southern neighbors. Some agreements were reached to start a ceasefire in Syria. Two reports on the upcoming British referendum to leave the EU, with Boris Johnson in favor and David Cameron opposed.
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)
