This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- China has planted 2.6 billion trees this year as part of a United Nations plan to counter global warming. The Chinese President Hu Jintao spoke to the United Nations Climate Change summit calling for developed countries to assist developing nations reduce carbon production. The new US plan to charge tariffs on tires imported from China has begun snowballing into calls for more widespread protectionism and the threat of a trade war. The Israeli government is enflamed over a cartoon of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu in an Egyptian magazine. A South American conference on migration has approved free transit between the 12 countries of the Union of South America.
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 or send them a letter to Radio Netherlands Worldwide, PO Box 222, 1200JG, Hilversum, The Netherlands.
French riot police shut down a makeshift camp known as "The Jungle," where migrants from Iraq and Afghanistan wait to get passage to England the European Union has a migrant policy but member nations do not necessarily follow it. In the general economic pinch, many people have stopped buying "fair trade" food items- EU nations purchase nearly 70 percent of all "fair trade" goods.
From CUBA- Two stories about the return of President Zelaya to Honduras where he has refuge in the Brazilian embassy. At the United nations, Bolivian President Evo Morales blamed capitalism for the onset of global warming. A United Nations nuclear conference has passed a resolution criticizing Israel for its secret nuclear arsenal, despite objections by the United States. Reports say that the US is planning on expanding its counter terrorism operations and drone attacks in Pakistan. The Los Angeles Times reports that the CIA is greatly increasing its presence in Afghanistan.
From RUSSIA- US Defense Secretary Gates approves the US plan to drop the Missile Defense Program in Poland and the Czech Republic- it will be replaced by new missiles in submarines at sea. Citizens in Bristol, England can vote on whether artistic graffiti is allowed to remain on walls.
There is an article about the Shortwave Report by Cassandra Roos on line at-

I was interviewed for an informative weekly radio show Mediageek, available at

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 < >
There are several other streams that work better- < >Freak Radio Santa Cruz now streams this program on Friday at 9:00am.(PDST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed:// > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)

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)
