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 Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, and Sputnik Radio.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on the protests in Madrid following the congressional vote allowing Mariano Rajoy to continue as Prime Minister of Spain. NATO defense ministers put into effect the biggest military buildup on Russia's borders since the Cold War. An article was published questioning whether Russia's foreign bases really a threat. At the UN demands were made that all fighting stop in Syria.
From CUBA- Two reports on the political turmoil in Venezuela, where right-wing opposition forces who want to impeach President Maduro called off a protest march and trial. Former Uruguayan President Mujica questioned the neo-liberal policies of the new Argentinian President Marci and the global growth of right-wing politicians. The recently installed government in Brazil says that the expansion of government funded social services caused the country's economic problems- and that the 20 year freeze on public spending will fix the situation.
From JAPAN- Japan will sign a deal on nuclear power technology with India, the first such deal with a country that has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The Chinese President met the Taiwan opposition leader in Beijing where they agreed on the "one China" policy- this is in contrast to the current pro-independence President of Taiwan. The Chinese Premier met with Japanese business leaders and discussed restoring bilateral ties. Japan is protesting some new Chinese gas field development in the South China Sea.
From RUSSIA- Sophie Shevarnadze interviewed Dr David Shambaugh director of the China Policy Program at George Washington University. They discussed the legacy of Obama's policies with China and Asia, and the tensions over who has rights in the South China Sea. They also covered the changing relationship between the US and the Philippines, and the Rand Corporation which released a study called "War With China: Plans for a military conflict with China."

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)
