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 NHK Japan, Radio Havana Cuba, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- The new governor of Kagoshima Prefecture wants to shut down the only operating nuclear power plant in Japan. Japanese auto parts manufacturer Denso has opened a pilot plant to produce biofuel from an oil producing micro algae. A new record temperature (129 F) for Asia was reached in Kuwait while this year will be the hottest global temperature on record. A solar powered plane has completed its trip around the world. North Korea warned that the attitude of the US will determine whether they will conduct another nuclear test. China denounced Japan, Australia, and the US for escalating tensions in the South China Sea.
From CUBA- Police in Greece clashed with protestors demanding that borders be open to incoming refugees in the north. There was a massive fire near a NATO base in Western Turkey which may have be sabotage.
From GERMANY- Three reports on the aftermath of last week's coup attempt in Turkey- police there can now hold anyone for up to a month without charges, over a thousand schools were deemed subversive and closed, and at least 15,000 citizens have been detained. Turkey has also closed scores of media outlets and put out warrants for dozens of journalists. In France a Catholic priest was killed by 2 men claiming allegiance to Daesh- President Hollande said France was at war with radicals, the Pope said it was no a war of religion, but caused by conflicting interests over money and resources. An Arab League Summit was cut back to one day when Egypt and Saudi Arabia failed to attend.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on 4 violent attacks in Germany, which authorities say only one, or possibly two, have anything to do with Islamic State terrorists. German Chancellor Merkel has modified her open attitude toward refugees and the anti-immigrant political parties have grown significantly along with hate crimes.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed French Professor Jean Bricmont about the root causes of terror attacks in Europe. Jean points out that the increased bombing of civilians in Syria stimulates blowback and the rise of the far right, and describes why the New Left politicians accept military intervention even though European citizens oppose it.

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  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)

"All those who prefer peace to power, and happiness to glory should thank the colonized people for their civilizing mission. By liberating themselves, they made Europeans more modest, less racist, and more human. Let us hope that the process continues and that the Americans are obliged to follow the same course. When one's own cause is unjust, defeat can be liberating."
-Jean Bricmont, "Humanitarian Imperialism: Using Human Rights to Sell War."
