A weekly 30 minute review of news and opinion, recorded from a shortwave radio. With times and freqs for listening at home. 2 files- broadcast and slow-modem streaming. Free to rebroadcast. Netherlands, Cuba, China, and Russia.
Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (September 1) is up at the website
http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (3.3MB) (29:00)
This week's show features stories from Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, China Radio International, and the Voice of Russia.
From NETHERLANDS- The US gun maker Smith and Wesson has bounced back from nearly closing shop in the late 90s to showing record profits thanks to the "War on Terror." All new or renewed passports in the Netherlands have a computer chip containing biometric data.
From CUBA- Mexico's top electoral court threw out allegations of fraud in last month's presidential election. Venezuelan President Chavez visited Syria, stating that the two nations are building a new world where states and peoples self-determination are respected. The US is accused of funding opposition to Chavez in Venezuela's December Presidential election, through the US Agency for International Development. The number of Americans without health insurance have risen to a record high in 2005, due to highly inflated costs. Then a Viewpoint on Cuba's international Medical School which trains doctors from around the world without charge- George Bush has called these doctors a social danger because of their revolutionary ideas.
From CHINA- UN Secretary general Kofi Annan has called on Israel to withdraw from S. Lebanon and cease its land and sea blockade. Iran's President has challenged George Bush to a live, unedited television debate about war issues and the international community. US ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, said that if sanctions against Iran are rejected, the US will act outside of the international body. The US rejected the debate challenge, claiming that Iran just wanted to mislead the world.
From RUSSIA- A commentary on the history of Iran's nuclear facilities, which was provided by the US in the 1960s. Then a commentary on Donald Rumsfeld's speech where he said that the US was capable of fighting an additional war in Iran or N Korea.
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line at- http://www.campusprogress.org/soundvision/780/big-stories-shortwaves
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.
This program will be aired on Friday afternoon at 4:30pm (PDST) on KZYX/Z Philo CA, you might be able to stream via http://www.kzyx.org >
There are several other streams that work better- http://www.freakradio.org >Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am and Saturday at 11am(PDST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from http://www.radio4all.net > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)
Check out the amazing streams at http://www.radicalradio.org >
And the Partytown streams are great and informative- http://www.partytown.com/radio >
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)

The most esteemed journalists are precisely the most servile. For it is by making themselves useful to the powerful that they gain access to the 'best' sources.
