NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
 http://npaper-wehaa.com/boulder-weekly/2015/03/26/#?article=2478097

This week's show features stories from Spanish National Radio, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From SPAIN- A press review from Monday covering the deportation of refugees stranded in Greece to Turkey. Then foreign press reports on the independence movement in Catalonia.
From GERMANY- The EU presented plans for a new asylum policy on Wednesday. Dutch voters rejected a free trade deal between the EU and Ukraine, and the poll did turn out to be valid. An owner of 3 VW dealerships in the US has filed a lawsuit against VW over the diesel emissions scandal. A description of the 11 million leaked documents being called the Panama Papers.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed Kristinn Hrafnnson, co-founder of the Icelandic Center for Investigative Journalism. The topic was the Panama Papers and how and why the press is releasing information in the way they are. The papers are not searchable by the public, like Wikileaks releases are, and the press is very selective on the released names of politicians who used the off-shore banking scheme.
From CUBA- A group of indigenous women in Honduras are protesting police offices seeking justice for the murder of environmentalist Berta Caceres. Several reports on the ongoing attempt to oust Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who maintains that she will not resign in what she describes as an attempted coup.
From JAPAN- The Japanese parliament (or Diet) is seeing confrontations over accepting the Trans Pacific Partnership Free Trade Agreement. A Japanese high court dismissed a request by residents to suspend operations of two nuclear reactors in southwestern Japan. Next week Japan will host the G-7 meeting in Hiroshima- the foreign ministers will lay flowers at the peace memorial park.

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at  http://radio.mediageek.net

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 <  http://www.kzyx.org >

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)

"Due to the fact that I experienced personally the situation of a political prisoner, I have an historical commitment to all those that were or are prisoners just because they expressed their views, their public opinion, their own opinions."
-Dilma Rousseff
