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, NHK Japan, Sputnik Radio, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From GERMANY- Germany's anti-immigration Pegida movement is working to become a recognized political party. A sequence of stories on the attempted coup in Turkey, which has led to many deaths, further crackdowns on civil liberties, and a purging of many thousands of potential dissidents. EU leaders worry that Turkey may reinstitute the death penalty and President Erdogan declared a 3 month state of emergency. Following the truck massacre in Nice, the French government has extended its state of emergency for 6 months. The French Prime minister forced through a labor law that has been widely protested for several months recently.
From JAPAN- Following last week's announcement that the US will install a cutting edge missile system in S Korea, North Korea tested 3 more missiles- Japan is trying to get a UN denunciation of North Korea. A Chinese naval chief says that China will never agree to stop building facilities on its artificial islands in the South China Sea. 10 US senators, including Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, have called on President Obama to adopt a policy before he leaves office of no first use of nuclear weapons.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed filmmaker Ken Loach, who just won the top prize at the Cannes film festival for his film "I, Daniel Blake." They discuss the newly non-elected Prime Minister Theresa May, the Brexit election, rising nationalism and the far-right in Europe, problems with the EU, and the US manipulation of Latin America.
From CUBA- Venezuela reopened its border crossing with Colombia which they say was closed because of Venezuelans were smuggling government subsidized goods like fuel into Colombia. The Foreign Minister of Venezuela says President Maduro wants to maintain diplomatic relations with the US, while not tolerating interference in domestic affairs. Ecuador has rejected a US supreme court ruling ordering the country to pay oil giant Chevron for breach of contract. El Salvador has overturned its amnesty law that protected war criminals for 20 years. The US Democratic Party's platform committee has called for the closure of the School of the Americas, now called the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security and Cooperation.

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)

"I turned down the OBE because it's not a club you want to join when you look at the villains who've got it. It's all the things I think are despicable: patronage, deferring to the monarchy and the name of the British Empire, which is a monument of exploitation and conquest."
-Ken Loach
