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 Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK Japan, and Sputnik Radio.
From GERMANY- VW says it will take up to 14 years to recover from the emissions test cheating scandal. No facility has been found to store German nuclear waste, with a report saying that it might not be developed until the next century. German Chancellor Merkel said that the EU will continue to grow without the UK as a member. Nigel Farage, leader of UKIP and an architect of the Brexit movement, has resigned. There was a large protest in London against the result of the Brexit referendum. The flight recorder from the Egyptian passenger jet that went down in May in the Mediterranean indicates that an onboard fire caused the crash. Tony Blair says he takes full responsibility for Britain going to war in Iraq in 2003 and that it was the correct thing to do.
From CUBA- There is a world campaign to pressure the Honduran government to investigate the murder of environmental activist Berte Caceres. Public school teachers in Mexico City have begun a strike to oppose new education reforms. Wikileaks has released more than 1000 emails about the Iraq war from Hillary Clinton's private email server. Canadian courts ruled that the Northern Gateway oil pipeline cannot be built because of indigenous peoples rights. Israel approved plans to construct 800 new housing units in and around occupied east Jerusalem, and Iceland will boycott all Israeli products until Palestine is freed from occupation. The Obama administration has released its assessment of the number of civilians killed by drone strikes- researchers say the truth may be 10 times more.
From JAPAN- Japanese military forces deny that their jets threatened Chinese military aircraft last month. The Japanese Coast Guard reported Chinese vessels in disputed waters. The US will impose sanctions on North Korean leader Kim Jong-un for human rights abuses and censorship. The Chilcot Report, an independent inquiry on the Iraq War has been made public in the UK, seriously questioning the UK decision to help the US invade Iraq in 2003.
From RUSSIA- Two interviews by Afshin Rattansi concerning the Chilcot Report. First he speaks with Sami Ramadani an exile from Iraq and University professor- he describes the horrors of the US sanctions on Iraqis for 13 years before the invasion, how right after 9/11 the Pentagon chose seven countries (including Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, and Somalia) for regime change, and how the war continues to completely ruin Iraq. Then Lindsey German reports on Iraqi press reviews including the current suffering of Iraqi children, and then the news that the Iraqi government is receiving its first F-16 jets which will be an economic rush to 500 British companies.

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)
