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, Radio Havana Cuba, Spanish National Radio, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- A North Korean delegation argued with the new US Naval commander over escalated tensions at a maritime security conference in Bali. Delegates at the UN Conference on Disarmament in Geneva clashed, with the US representative saying the US, UK, and France would never agree to a ban on nuclear weapons. At the Fukushima nuclear power plant another attempt to create an ice wall to limit radioactive runoff into the Pacific Ocean is being attempted, 6 years after the disaster.
From CUBA- A Viewpoint on US Vice-President Pence's tour of Latin American countries. Pence is trying to drum up support for US actions against the elected government of Venezuela. Venezuela holds the largest supply of petroleum on the planet, and it was owned by US corporations until it was nationalized back in 1976. Pence's proposed invasion and overthrow of the Venezuelan government was rejected in most nations, and protests occurred in every state he visited.
From SPAIN-Alison Hughes begins with reports on the murders by vehicles in Barcelona and Cambrils. 13 died in Barcelona and over 100 were injured and the perpetrator was shot dead by police days later. The night of the attack a car tried to replicate the event in Cambrils, resulting in 5 men being killed by police. In the Syrian city of Raqqa, US led airstrikes have intensified killing more than 100 civilians in 2 days, nearly 1000 since June. In Iraq, where the 9 month US led operation in Mosul left 40,000 civilians dead, the fighting against Daesh has moved to Tal Afar. There is a controversial referendum scheduled for September 25th to create an independent Kurdish region in Iraq.
From RUSSIA- On his show called Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi spoke again with renowned documentarian John Pilger. John discussed the biased media reports on Venezuela, the provocations and risks of a global war ignited by Washington, the NATO buildup on the Russian border to keep the US weapons manufacturers going, and how Trump is a symptom of a system bringing us to the edge of a nuclear war.

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)
