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 Havana Cuba, Spanish National Radio, NHK World Radio Japan, and Sputnik Radio.
From CUBA- The governments of Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador have joined forces to protect their citizens who may face deportation from the US after Trump is inaugurated. Despite a state of emergency, protests took place in Paris opposing the election of Trump and the fear of rising fascist candidates in upcoming elections in Europe. In Brazil trade unions have called for protests and a general strike in opposition to the neo-liberal agenda of President Temer. The Colombian President Santos has condemned escalating violence against human rights defenders.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on Parliament repealing controversial Spanish educational reforms that included standardized tests. Spanish arms exports have increased 400% since 2006 with much of it going to Saudi Arabia. In Turkey the government has fired another 15,000 civil servants and media outlets.
From JAPAN- Japanese Prime Minister Abe says the TPP free trade pact will be meaningless without the US involvement. At the devastated nuclear power plant in Fukushima the removal of spent nuclear fuel scheduled for 2018 has been delayed again. A cooling system at the Fukushima nuke failed temporarily following a powerful earthquake offshore. There is a move to impeach President Park Geun-hye in South Korea.
From RUSSIA- On Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi got a press review from Ben Chacko, editor of the UK's Morning Star. The Sunday Time reported that Tony Blair may return to frontline politics, The Guardian accused Venezuelan President Maduro of being a dictator, and Global Research on the calls for a clamp down on so-called "fake news."

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)

" The state can't give you freedom, and the state can't take it away. You're born with it, like your eyes, like your ears. Freedom is something you assume, then you wait for someone to try to take it away. The degree to which you resist is the degree to which you are free."
-Utah Phillips
