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, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK Japan.
From SPAIN- Spaniards returned to the polls last Sunday in an attempt to resolve the December election that resulted in a hung parliament- the outcome was almost exactly the same. Then the first Brexit report. I need to say that there were many hours of interesting reports on the British vote to leave the EU, but I can only fit in some of what was absent in the American media. Alison Hughes presents a general description of the results, Jeremy Corbyn's loss of power in the Labor Party, and the EU request for a quick British exit. Then she played part of a speech Nigel Farage, leader of the UKIP party, gave to the European Parliament explaining why the vote went the way it did.
From GERMANY- In the wake of the Brexit vote Angela Merkel called for unity among the remaining EU members, while moves were made for similar votes in France and Holland. Scotland is considering leaving the UK and joining the EU as an independent nation, and more European leaders demanded Britain hasten the exit. France says London must forfeit its role as the processing center for Euro currency transactions.
From RUSSIA- Afshan Rattansi spoke about Brexit with Sir Vince Cable, former business secretary for David Cameron. He said he was not surprised by the outcome which he attributed to the rising nationalism and the working class move to the political right. He is pessimistic about the future and thought the referendum should not have been allowed.
From CUBA- In Florida a jury found a former Chilean Army officer liable for the murder of Victor Jara in 1973 during the US backed coup. Bolivian President Evo Morales accused the DEA of selling 50% of confiscated drugs to finance illegal activities. Lawyers for Edward Snowden are pressuring President Obama to pardon him before he leaves office. More civilians were killed by a US drone strike in Afghanistan.
From JAPAN- It is highly likely that a large amount of melted nuclear remains at the bottom of one of the Fukushima reactors. Japan is staying fully alert for intruders into their water and air space. Russia has accepted Turkey's apology for shooting down a military jet last November. The Russian defense say that a US Navy destroyer sailed dangerously close to Russian vessels in the Mediterranean Sea.

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)
