NEW ARTICLE about the Shortwave Report in the Boulder Weekly by Gavin Dahl-

This week's show features stories from Radio Deutsche-Welle, Sputnik Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From GERMANY- At the World Economic Forum in Davos Switzerland, the leaders of Germany and France made speeches saying that protectionism and isolation are not the answers to global problems. Chancellor Merkel and President Macron spoke in advance of Trump's arrival, saying that global prosperity had to reach the poorest people on the planet. They also made references to a European defense force and praised multilateralism. Former Brazilian President Lula da Silva lost his appeal on corruption charges.
From RUSSIA- On his program called Going Underground Afshin Rattansi interviewed Deborah Hardoon, researcher at OXFAM GB. OXFAM released a new inequality report top coincide with the Davos forum. They found that the richest 1% of the planet got 82% of total economic growth in the past 12 months. They want the workers and the poor to be represented at economic forums, and to confront the failings of the current system of wealth distribution.
From CUBA- Protests are not allowed in Davos, but there were large anti-Trump demonstrations in the rest of Switzerland. Tensions continue to escalate in Honduras where protests continue against the recent election. Cuba is rapidly expanding its use of renewable energy sources. Palestinians noted the arrival of Mike Pence to Israel with large demonstrations. The NYT reports that the Pentagon is proposing widening the permissible use of nuclear weapons to include fighting cyber attacks.
From JAPAN- The radiation cleanup at the devastated Fukushima power plant has fallen another 3 years behind schedule. South Korean officials began a 3 day visit to North Korea ahead of the Olympic games. A North Korean official at a disarmament conference denounced the US for throwing a wet blanket over warming relations with the south. The Catalonian parliament has proposed former leader Puigdemont as the candidate for regional president.

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)
