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, Spanish National Radio, and Sputnik Radio.
From JAPAN- The world's largest solar car race is underway in Australia. On Tuesday 2 US B1 bombers intimidated North Korea, firing missiles and doing military exercises with Japanese forces. A Japanese court ruled in favor of a class action suit against TEPCO and the Japanese government for leaving the Fukushima nuke unprepared for the devastating tsunami in 2011. A member of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN), which won this year's Nobel Peace Prize, has called on countries to review their nuclear policies.
From CUBA- Public workers in France staged a massive strike against President Macron's plans to cut jobs and pay conditions. Thousands gathered in Bolivia to honor Che Guevara on the anniversary of his murder 50 years ago by the CIA. Ousted Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff criticized current president Temer for being submissive to the US regarding Venezuela, and for approving joint military actions with the US troops in the Amazon. The IAEA and many world leaders are rejecting Trump's claims that Iran has violated the spirit of the nuclear agreement.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes produced 3 shows this week on the separatist crisis in Catalonia. She begins by describing the anti-separatist march in Barcelona which included people bussed in from around the country, including far-right activists. National police remain in the region as the regional leader was expected to declare Catalon independence from Spain. He declared the region a separate republic and immediately added that this declaration be suspended so as to allow a dialogue with Madrid. This to prevent martial law from the federal government. Alison then gives Spanish press reviews of the events, and German and French politicians decline to intervene.
From RUSSIA- On his program Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi interviewed Victor Taibo, member of the Revolutionary Left Party in Spain. First some criticism of the Spanish police brutality by UK politicians. Then Victor talks about the EU and its governments protecting capitalism before the citizens, like the events in Greece. They discuss the ruling Popular Party's origins with Franco ministers, the neo-nazis in the latest anti-separatist marches, and the need for international solidarity.

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)

"Benito Mussolini created the word 'fascism.' He defined it as 'the merging of the state and the corporation.' He also said a more accurate word would be 'corporatism.' This was the definition in Webster's up until 1987 when a corporation bought Webster's and changed it to exclude any mention of corporations."
