This week's show features stories from NHK World Radio Japan, China Radio International, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From JAPAN- The Grand Assembly of Traditional Afghanistan has voted to allow US troops to remain in the country until 2024. A Japanese government panel is considering resuming the construction of a fast-breed nuclear reactor.
From CHINA- A review of the current nuclear power policies in European nations. The British Medical Association has recommended that smoking while driving should be banned in the UK.
From GERMANY- There was a week long debate at the UN on cluster bombs- most countries want complete abolition, but the US, Russia, and China want old stockpiles reduced while continuing production. The UN released new figures on the prevalence and growth of HIV/Aids in the world. Russia has called new sanctions against Iran unacceptable and against international law.
From CUBA- There will be a conference next week in Washington DC calling for the removal of Cuba from the list of states that sponsor terrorism. Ecuador is creating a joint proposal calling for the democratization of the UN.
From RUSSIA- A commentary on the UN sponsored forum held to discuss methods of turning the Middle East into a nuclear free zone. Russia strongly condemned the sanctions that the US has placed against Iran.

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)
