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, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
From JAPAN- Outgoing UN Secretary-General Ban ki Moon is confident that the Paris agreement on global warming will go into effect soon. The Foreign Ministers of Japan, Germany, Brazil and India are calling for democratic reforms in the UN Security Council. 27% of the Japanese population is now over 65 years of age. Japan is considering permanently decommissioning its current fast-breeder nuclear reactor. China and Russian navies performed a joint landing drill in the disputed South China Sea.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed retired Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson, former Chief of Staff for Secretary of State Colin Powell. He discusses the future of warfare with Hillary Clinton as President. He goes on to say that terrorism is not a new threat, and that abandoning rapprochement with Russia is dangerous and provocative. He also criticizes the so-called velvet revolutions as morphed CIA interventions. He praises Edward Snowden and says it is unsafe for him to ever return to the US.
From CUBA-Ecuadorian President Correa warned about the existence of a new Operation Condor being perpetrated against progressive governments in Latin America. When Brazilian President Temer spoke at the UN General Assembly the delegations of 6 Latin American nations walked out in protest. Amnesty International says a US made bomb was used in an attack on Doctors Without Borders hospital in Yemen, while 4 US Senators are pushing to ban weapon sales to Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia is accused of using internationally banned white phosphorous in its war on Yemen.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on migration, including the revelation that 4 war-torn countries have each produced more than one million refugees. While the US media focused all attention on pressure cooker bombs in New York city, the US led coalition bombed Syrian troops thus effectively ending a fragile ceasefire in Syria, saying it was an accident. Russia demanded an emergency UN Security Council meeting which was ridiculed by US ambassador Samantha Power.

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)

"My party (Republican), unfortunately, is the bastion of those people, not all of them, but most of them, who are still basing their decision on race. Let me just be candid: My party is full of racists. And the real reason a considerable portion of my party wants President Obama out of the White House has nothing to do with the content of his character, nothing to do with his competence as commander-in-chief and president, and everything to do with the color of his skin. And that's despicable."
-Colonel (ret) Lawrence Wilkerson 2012
