The Shortwave Report 01/28 Listen Globally!

A weekly 30 minute review of news and opinion, recorded from a shortwave radio and the internet. With times, frequencies, and websites for listening at home. 2 files- broadcast and slow-modem streaming. Free to rebroadcast. China, Spain, Germany, Cuba, and Russia.

Dear Radio Friend, 

            The latest Shortwave Report (January 28) 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 Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and The Voice of Russia.

   From CHINA- A brief summary of the return of Chinese President Hu Jintao from his US visit. The Koreas have set a date for military talks. French President Sarkozy has called for global monetary reforms, including regulation of commodity markets. 6 world powers met with Iran to discuss the nuclear situations and achieved nothing. Russia is waiting for a NATO response to a recent proposal about the European anti-missile defense system. Tony Blair offered an apology for all the deaths in Iraq. Protests continue in Egypt against President Mubarak, with former IAEA chief Mohamed el-Baradei returning as a possible leader of the revolt.

    From GERMANY- The EU is feeling pressure to get involved in the uprising in Tunisia and Egypt- are these confrontations really an "Arab Spring?" A survey shows that the French are far more opposed to free market capitalism than the Chinese. According to documents released by al-Jazeera, Palestinian negotiators offered far-reaching concessions to Israel in peace talks two years ago.

   From SPAIN-  A suicide bomber killed 35 at a Russian airport, the attack having the hallmarks of militant revolutionaries from the North Caucuses. The uprising in Tunisia inspired the major protests in Yemen. Cocoa surged to its highest price in 30 years because of an export ban in Ivory Coast.

   From CUBA- An Israeli inquiry into the attack on the Gaza flotilla found no blame on the soldiers who murdered unarmed activists. A Turkish inquiry into the same flotilla assault found Israeli troops at fault. Peru became the 6th Latin American nation to recognize Palestine as an independent state. Some Haitians are denouncing the US for preventing the return of former President Aristide. The death toll from recent floods in Brazil surpassed 800. Bolivia has rejected the return of the DEA to its territory. Thousands protested in Pakistan against the continued use of drone attacks by the US.

    From RUSSIA-  The US did not score well in the annual report by Human Rights Watch- this follows a UN Human Rights Commission report in November which listed 228 complaints from 87 nations.

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 evening at 6:30pm (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.(PST)

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)

--"The slow progress of the nuclear-weapons states toward making good on their commitments to move toward nuclear disarmament, with 27,000 warheads still in existence, is creating an environment of cynicism among the non-nuclear weapons states." 

-- Mohamed el-Baradei
