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, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and Spanish National Radio.
From JAPAN- A US military plane crashed off the coast of Japan, following numerous accidents that have occurred to the US Naval 7th Fleet. The White House has designated North Korea as a "state sponsor of terrorism," one of the reasons being assassinations on foreign soil. The US military has begun bombing opium processing facilities in Afghanistan to cut off funding for the Taliban. The US military says its 9th airstrike since September in Somalia has killed at least 100 Islamic militants. The leaders of Russia, Turkey and Iran have agreed that Russia will play a key role in negotiating a peace deal for Syria- a main opposition group in Syria is set to refuse to attend a peace conference.
From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi briefly comments on the resignation of Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe, a former colony of Great Britain called Rhodesia. Afshin warns to watch out for disinformation in NATO nation mainstream media about Mugabe's history and replacement.
From CUBA- A Viewpoint on the US President’s continuing denial of climate change. Recently the Pope, Noam Chomsky , and leading scientists have spoken out against the delusion that climate change is a speculation rather than an event we are experiencing now.
From SPAIN- Alison Hughes begins with an update on the political situation in the Spanish region of Catalonia- some leaders remain jailed for rebellion, and predictions are that the December 21st elections will see pro-independence candidates winning. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has not achieved an alliance in Parliament and will likely call for new elections. Then Alison reads a report from The Independent written by Patrick Cockburn on the state of affairs in Iraq and the region. The possibility of peace is not in the hands of Baghdad, but the US, Saudi Arabia, and Israel.

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 http://www.mediageek.net/sound/2006/mg100606-64k.mp3

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)

"Countries such as the U.S. and Britain have taken it upon themselves to decide for us in the developing world, even to interfere in our domestic affairs and to bring about what they call regime change."
