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, and Russia.
Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (May 11) 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, and the Voice of Russia.
From NETHERLANDS- First a press review on the French Presidential elections and the reactions on the streets of France. In Austria it is relatively easy for a citizen to purchase a gun, much like in the US- in 1997 Austria began requiring psychological tests for those purchasing guns and the results have been significantly reduced homicides and suicides. The Pope is visiting Brazil, the country with the most Catholics in the world- but the percentage of followers across Latin America has dropped dramatically, because of lack of Roman concern for the poor and the environment.
From CUBA- At a UN conference, researchers say that a large scale shift to organic farming could reduce world hunger and improve the environment. A Viewpoint on the dropping of all charges in the US against former Cuban terrorist Luis Posada Carriles. The board of Directors of the World Bank have found Paul Wolfowitz guilty of a conflict of interest and hope he will resign- Europeans want him out, and Latin American nations have begun forming an alternative to the World Bank. In the US, a survey has found that almost all of the Democratic Presidential hopefuls are committed to increasing the size of the US military- only Richardson and Kucinich favor downsizing.
From RUSSIA- The Pentagon has informed another 35,000 soldiers that they will be sent to Iraq beginning in August. A commentary on the increasing levels of violence in Iraq and fears that the country will be broken up into separate states.
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line at- http://www.campusprogress.org/soundvision/780/big-stories-shortwaves
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.
This program will be aired on Friday afternoon at 4:30pm (PST) 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(PST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from http://www.radio4all.net/podcast.php/.xml?series=outFarpress%20presents > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)
Check out the amazing streams at http://www.radicalradio.org >
And Radio For Peace International at http://www.rfpi.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)
