NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
     This week's show features stories from  NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Havana Cuba,  Sputnik Radio, and Spanish National Radio.
     From JAPAN- Japan will receive its first shipment of US crude oil in late February, following the removal of a 40 year ban on US oil exports. Tsai Ing-wen was elected as the first female President of Taiwan in a landslide vote- the current cabinet has resigned leaving her in an uncertain position of power. The China led Asian Infrastructure  Investment Bank has begun business in earnest. Oxfam released a report saying that the 62 richest people own as much as half of the world's population. Trade ministers from 12 nations will officially sign the Trans Pacific Partnership free trade agreement in New Zealand on February 4- this will mark the end of negotiations, and nations will need to have to achieve domestic ratification.
     From CUBA- The US is actively deporting Hondurans- meanwhile Honduras is besieged with scandals and a plan to reduce corruption. Colombia is enacting a one year ban on the carrying of weapons in public to curb gun violence. French authorities have bullozed a refugee encampment in Calais- UN Human Rights experts have expressed concern about new counterterrorism measures adopted in France. A US delegation will visit Israel next week to finalize a new 10 year deal on military aid.
     From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi began a show with a piece about Alan Rickman who had directed a stage production of "My Name Is Rachel Corrie." Rachel's death, caused by being run over by an Israeli military bulldozer in 2003, has been ruled an accident by an Israeli court. Afshin then interviewed Tadatoshi Akiba, former mayor of Hiroshima, about the British plan to upgrade its nuclear weapons. 
      From SPAIN- Spain broadcast an interview with American author Don Winslow that was recorded before the latest arrest of Joaquin Guzman, or El Chapo. He discusses how the Mexican drug cartels became terrorist organizations, why the Mexican government allowed Guzman to escape, and the only solution to the horribly violent drug industry around the world.
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 
  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 < > 
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)
