A weekly 30 minute review of international news and opinion, recorded from a shortwave radio and the internet. With times, frequencies, and websites for listening at home. 3 files- Highest quality broadcast, regular broadcast, and slow-modem streaming. NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, the Voice of Russia, Spanish National Radio, and Radio Havana Cuba.

Dear Radio Friend,
The latest Shortwave Report (June 15) is up at the website http://www.outfarpress.com/shortwave.shtml in 3 forms- (new) HIGHEST QUALITY (128kb)(27MB), broadcast quality (16MB), and quickdownload or streaming form (6MB) (28:59) Links at page bottom
(If you have access to Audioport there is a highest quality version posted up there {35MB} http://www.audioport.org/index.php?op=producer-info&uid=904&nav=&)

This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, Radio Deutsche-Welle, the Voice of Russia, Spanish National Radio, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From JAPAN- The mayor of Ohi has approved the restart of 2 nuclear reactors, the first to return on line in Japan. The educational ministry of Japan apologized for resetting the "safe" radiation exposure level for children after the Fukushima nuclear disaster.
From GERMANY- Parliamentary elections in France last weekend showed a swing to the left. Transparency International released a report on the links between corruption and the ongoing financial crisis in Europe- a dialogue with one of their directors. A report on Syria including Hillary Clinton's accusation that Russia was supplying attack helicopters to the government for use against rebels and civilians.
From RUSSIA- Russia supplies 70% of the weapons Syria purchases, but has made no new helicopter deliveries. Turkey is delivering weapons to Syrian opposition forces.
From SPAIN- Spain's borrowing rates have soared despite a weekend bailout of Spanish banks. The President of the European Commission has called for swift moves to create a Eurozone banking union. As many as 100,000 protestors took to the streets of Moscow demanding fresh elections- this despite severe threats from Putin’s government, who the day before raided homes of prominent activists.
From CUBA- The Falkland Islands announced a referendum on British rule to be held next year- leaders in Argentina are calling this a "media stunt" to distract from new talks at the United Nations demanding that the UK return the islands now. Barack Obama will skip the Rio Plus 20 Sustainable Summit in Brazil next week. A new US study shows that drinking water contamination from fracking can occur much quicker than previously believed. Student leaders in Chile announced a new strike against profit-making education. There was a fresh US drone strike in Yemen killing 9.
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://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.
NEW TIME SLOT on KZYX! This program will be aired on Sunday afternoon at 4pm (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)
NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://radio.indymedia.org/en/podcast?keys=shortwave++

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)
