NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-

     This week's show features stories from  Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and NHK World Radio Japan.
     From GERMANY-  2 Australians were executed in Indonesia for trafficking heroin, leading to a serious conflict between the nations. UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon met with the Italian premier to discuss the boat migration crisis in the Mediterranean. French peacekeeping forces are accused of sexually abusing children in the Central African Republic. 200 girls and women were rescued from Boko Haram in Nigeria but they were not the school girls abducted last year. The Southern African Development committee met and discussed the attacks on foreigners in South Africa. The president of Turkey strongly criticized the EU for using the word "genocide" in describing the massacre of Armenians in 1915.
     From CUBA- A US Senator is pushing a bill to lift the US embargo on Cuba. The Cuban Foreign Minister visited the Organization for the prohibition of chemical weapons and offered support. FARC rebels at the peace talks in Cuba denounced the death of 19 human rights defenders and hundreds of threats to activists in the first quarter of 2015. At a UN conference in Vatican City, Ecuadoran President Correa presented his country's actions to prevent climate change. The Saudi King fired his successor because he opposed the ongoing bombing of Yemen, which has increased this week.
      From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviews Sami Ramadani on the reasons for the Saudi-led bombing of Yemen, and how the US has used the so-called Islamic State to further its agenda.
      From JAPAN- Japan and the US say they will cooperate to deal with international threats to sovereignty. Japanese PM Abe addressed the US Congress, offering condolences for WW2 and saying his country is working for world peace and stability. A forest fire is burning around the Chernobyl nuclear plant in Ukraine, raising fears of radiation releases. Thousands of people protested nuclear weapons in NYC on Sunday, prior to the Non-Proliferation Treaty Summit- they delivered 7 million signatures demanding a world free of nuclear weapons. A Mexican government official wants talks to ban possession of nuclear weapons, while Israel is observing the Summit for the first time in 20 years. 80 countries have pledged to prohibit nuclear weapons, but many do not trust countries who currently possess such weapons.

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)
