With times, frequencies, and websites for listening at home. 3 files- Highest quality broadcast, regular broadcast, and slow-modem streaming. Radio Deutsche-Welle, the Voice Of Russia, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK Japan, and Spanish National Radio.

Dear Radio Friend,

The latest Shortwave Report (August 31) 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 Radio Deutsche-Welle, the Voice of Russia, Radio Havana Cuba, NHK World Radio Japan, and Spanish National Radio.

From GERMANY- The Russian government has denounced international criticism of the jailing of the punk band Pussy Riot for songs with anti-Putin messages. Are freedom and civil rights vanishing in Russia and what does this portend for the President?

From RUSSIA- There are numerous international reports that the mercenary firm formerly known as Blackwater has been carrying out targeted assassinations and torture for the CIA in Iraq and Afghanistan. Why does America outsource these murders?

From CUBA- In Mexico the electoral tribunal has rejected all complaints about the last Presidential election. Over 150,000 Chileans marched this week for free education and a return to democracy. South African Bishop Desmond Tutu withdrew from a Johannesburg conference because of the presence of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair. In Florida, Codepink were unable to arrest Condoleezza Rice on charges of war crimes. French President Hollande announced that France will recognize a provisional rebel government in Syria.

From JAPAN- An Insight on the anti-Japan protests spreading through China following the arrest of Hong Kong activists who landed on a disputed island. A panel of experts says that the majority of Japanese citizens want a nuclear-free nation. One-third of children in Fukushima have lumps on their thyroid glands, but the government wants more tests to see if it is related to the nuclear disaster.

From SPAIN- Cuba will host peace talks between the Colombian government and FARC rebels. A Brazilian court ordered the resumption of construction on a major dam in the Amazon rainforest. Then 2 press reviews- the first on social stratification in Greece and the second on German President Merkel's attitude about bailing out Spain and Italy.

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 >

Podcast- feed://www.radio4all.net/responder.php/podcast/podcast.xml?series=outFarpress+presents

or 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)
