     This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, Sputnik Radio, and NHK World Radio Japan.
    From GERMANY- Several stories on the leftist Syriza party victory in Greece, with pledges of ending austerity measures and a halt to the sale of state assets. US firms will build nukes in India. Two stories on Pegida, the anti-Islam groups in Germany. Fidel and Raul Castro make comments about the changing relations between the US and Cuba.
     From CUBA- Celac, the community of Latin American countries, has condemned the continuing US economic blockade of Cuba. Israel launched attacks on Syrian positions in the Golan Heights. The UN has called on Israel to immediately cease the destruction of Palestinian housing in the occupied West Bank. The Mexican Attorney General claims that all 43 of the students missing since September are dead- family members and activists point out that there is no concrete evidence that this is true.
     From RUSSIA-  British politician George Galloway is a regular broadcaster on the current incarnation of the Voice of Russia- here he talks with activists about the situation in Mexico with the disappeared students. They describe the relationship of the school the students attended with the Zapatista movement, and the levels of corruption in the Mexican government.
     From JAPAN-  Talks are continuing for the Trans Pacific Partnership, with Japan and the US not agreeing on US exports of rice, beef, and pork. A Japanese journalist has been caught in a hostage situation with people claiming to be from the so-called Islamic State. Egyptian authorities released Hosni Mubarak's sons, and the military killed more than 20 protestors last weekend. Russian President Putin called the Ukrainian army a NATO Foreign Legion bent on containing Russia.
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)
