The Shortwave Report 06/11 Listen Globally!

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. China, Netherlands, Cuba, and Russia.

Dear Radio Friend,

The latest Shortwave Report (June 11) is up at the website

http://www.outfarpress.com/outfarpress/shortwave.shtml in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (4.9MB) (28:59)

(NEW! If you have access to Audioport.org there is a higher quality version posted up there {26.7MB} http://www.audioport.org/index.php?op=producer-info&uid=904&nav=&)

This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, the Voice of Russia.

From CHINA- Two stories from CRI's special programming for World Environment Day on June 5th. As the need for electric vehicles becomes more obvious, much of the world looks to China for development and production. Carbon capture is a method of sequestering carbon dioxide from gross polluting power plants, but how dangerous is this approach?

From NETHERLANDS- Radio Netherlands has eliminated shortwave broadcasts to North America. The decision is based on their surveys that find very few listeners in N America. If you ever listen to RN on shortwave, please let them know- by email to letters@rnw.nl or send them a letter to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, PO Box 222, 1200JG, Hilversum, The Netherlands.

Concerns of a worsening recession in Europe are growing. Tens of thousands of workers in Spain have gone on strike to protest public sector wage cuts. European countries are preparing to return Afghan child refugees to Kabul, but human rights groups have serious concerns.

FROM GERMANY- The United Nations Special Investigator looking into extrajudicial killings has called for an immediate halt to the CIA's drone strikes on suspected Islamic militants.

From CUBA- The war on Afghanistan has entered its 104th month, making it the longest war in US history. Amnesty International released evidence that the cluster bombs that killed 55 in Yemen was from the US. 80 countries are meeting in Chile to expand the ban on cluster bombs which the US refuses to sign. A 14 year old Mexican boy was killed by US border guards on Monday. An update on Israel's blockade of humanitarian aid to the Gaza Strip.

From RUSSIA- Russian experts have found no proof that North Korea sank a South Korean warship in late March. The US and South Korea are preparing to launch major war game exercises in the Yellow Sea, in response to the alleged torpedo attack that North Korea denies. The Council of Europe is moving forward on an investigation of a conspiracy between pharmaceutical companies and officials of the World Health Organization concerning vaccines for the H1N1 flu epidemic.

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 (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.(PDST)

The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from 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)
