       From JAPANMore Chinese government ships entered waters that Japan considers their exclusive area in the east China Sea. The US State Dept said the US will continue to create a deterrent for itself and its allies while downplaying nuclear arsenal.

The Bolivian government accuses the opposition and media of destabilizing the country with lies. Then a Viewpoint on the US renovation of its nuclear weapons, with mass production beginning in next year- many countries are concerned that the escalation of the nuclear race will undo global efforts toward peace and cooperation.
       From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the Turkish military base where the US stores 50 nuclear weapons. Then a report on Yemen and the Saudi led coalition that fired on a school killing 10 children, while last week the US sold another $ 1 billion in weapons to the Saudis.
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)
