NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
     This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
     From JAPAN-  In Japan new national security laws have come into effect allowing the military to use force to defend other nations. Many citizens oppose these laws and had huge, by Japanese standards, protests outside the Parliament building. After years of planning and failed attempts, an in-ground ice wall around the devastated Fukushima nuclear reactors is starting up, hoping to limit radiation leaks into the Pacific Ocean. 
     From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed British Parliamentarian Lord Nazir Ahmed about the Brussels terror attack and its relationship to drone strikes carried out the same day in Yemen by NATO member the US. Do drone strikes, which kill more civilians than targeted terrorists, fuel more terrorism?
      From CUBA- The new Argentine President Mauricio Macri has blocked Latin American news network Telesur from cable services in the country. Fidel Castro wrote an editorial called "Brother Obama" saying that Cuba has no need for gifts from the Empire. Then a Viewpoint on Obama's visit to Cuba- Obama said that it is better to forget the past history of the US actions in Latin America and just move forward. Many believe that coups, terror attacks, and political manipulation by America must not be written off by those victimized for centuries.
      From SPAIN- Brazil, the 5th most populous country in the world, has had civilian rule since 1985, after 21 years of a military dictatorship. There is a huge corruption scandal at the state run oil company, implicating scores of businessmen and politicians. Some judges are focusing efforts on removing President Dilma Rousseff, a former revolutionary during the military rule, which many say is an attempted coup.
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)
