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 World Radio Japan, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- Japan and the EU have pledged additional aid for Palestine, counter to the recent US action. The UN says that 60,000 children under 5 in North Korea will likely suffer from acute malnutrition this year as a result of fuel sanctions. Under pressure from the federal government, the Catalan parliament in Spain postponed a vote on reelecting former regional leader as state president. A conference on establishing peace in Syria was held in the Russian city of Sochi.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes begins with a report on Turkey's military strikes on Kurds in Syria, resulting in many civilian deaths and the destruction of ancient villages. The UN heard a report on the increased state of war and threat of famine in Somalia. The British paper The Guardian carried out an investigation of US airstrikes in Somalia in the past 12 months, bolstering support for the extremists the US is trying to eliminate.
From CUBA- The US backed president of Honduras was inaugurated amidst massive protests alleging voter fraud. Over the weekend there was a large car bomb in front of police headquarters in Ecuador leading to a declared state of emergency in parts of the country. Thousands of UN employees in the Gaza strip staged a strike to protest US cuts to annual aid to relief agencies in Palestine.
From RUSSIA- American journalist Robert Parry died last weekend. He had devoted much of his work to trying to expose how government forces and media attribute black hat/white hat status to factions, creating public acceptance of interventionist wars. Then Afshin interviewed Dr Lucy Morgan Edwards advisor to EU ambassador in Afghanistan. She describes the US/EU involvement in Afghanistan as a huge looting exercise by NATO, military contractors, mining companies, and the illegal drugs trade. The US military is censoring its activities in the country while training Afghans, and then US companies sell them weapons.

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://www.mediageek.net/sound/2006/mg100606-64k.mp3

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 corporate grip on opinion in the United States is one of the wonders of the Western world. No First World country has ever managed to eliminate so entirely from its media all objectivity - much less dissent."
- Gore Vidal
