NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-
     This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, China Radio International, Radio Deutsche-Welle, and Spanish National Radio.
     From JAPAN- For the 22nd year in a row, Japan submitted a draft resolution at the UN calling for the total abolition of nuclear weapons. China expressed worry that Japan might use the 47 tons of plutonium it is storing to produce nuclear weapons. Japan will provide compensation for 13 workers who developed cancer after working at nuclear power plants. Protests continue against the new Japanese Security Bills allowing the military to engage in collective self-defense. The US Navy has added another destroyer to the fleet cruising Asian waters. NATO is conducting its largest military exercise in 13 years in Italy, Spain, and Portugal.
     From CHINA- Palestinian President Abbas called on the UN for a peace keeping force in his country. Several stories about Chinese President Xi Jinping's visit to the UK which resulted in many large economic deals, including building a nuclear power plant. Chinese officials criticized Japanese PM Abe for making an offering at the Yasukuni shrine honoring war criminals.
     From GERMANY- 130 developing nations accused rich ones of sidelining their interests at negotiations in preparation for the Paris UN Climate Conference. German Chancellor Merkel supports Turkey's bid for EU membership in exchange for aid in stemming the flow of refugees to Europe. French far-right politician Marine LePen is in court on charges of inciting racial hatred. At least 15,000 anti-Islamist Pegida members rallied in Dresden against the German government stance on allowing refugees asylum. Canada's incoming President Trudeau will end the country's participation in bombing IS forces. A lawsuit has been filed by relatives of a 19 year old Turkish-American killed in 2010 by Israeli commandos while trying to deliver aid to Palestinians.
      From SPAIN- John Kerry was in Madrid this week making military deals and discussing conflicts in the Middle East. 50 years ago 4 American nuclear bombs were dropped on Spain in a plane crash. One of Kerry's tasks was to agree to take responsibility for the clean up of the contaminated area in exchange for more US military presence in the country. Kerry also spoke against the proposal by France to create a peace keeping force to reduce violence between Israelis and Palestinians.
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)
