Dear Radio Friend,

This week's show features stories from the Voice Of Russia, Radio Deutsche-Welle, Spanish National Radio, Radio Havana Cuba, and NHK World Radio Japan.
From RUSSIA- There is growing confusion among Americans as to who the so-called good guys are in the so-called Arab Spring. The new Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi is acceptable to most American politicians, but wasn't everyone told that the Muslim Brotherhood was a terrorist group?
From GERMANY- Russia has a UN resolution to extend the UN mission in Syria, but opposes another bill that would allow for a military invasion. After 18 years of negotiations, the Russian parliament has approved entry into the WTO. Russia suffered severe flash floods last weekend following a months worth of rain in a day. An American who was sentenced to two years in a Thailand jail for translating criticism of the Thai King has been released. A report from a pub in Ireland on the local attitude about the Eurozone debt crisis.
From SPAIN- The Spanish government unveiled new austerity measures that President Rajoy said would not happen under his reign. The citizens are outraged and are in the streets along with miners who walked great distances to Madrid to protest..
From CUBA- Indigenous protestors in Bolivia continue to clash with police over a proposed road through their homelands. Bolivian President Morales says he will continue plans to nationalize iridium mines exploited by a Canadian company. The political movement called Paraguay Resist rejected the assessment of the Organization of American States on the impeachment of President Lugo. Israel proclaimed the right to continue building throughout the Occupied West Bank. Melting ice caused by global warming is being blamed for recent severe rainfall in northern Europe.
From JAPAN- At the ASEAN meeting in Cambodia strategies to keep Europe's debt crisis from affecting Asia were discussed. The deposed Nepalese King would like the throne to be restored to him after 4 years of the country being a republic. A senior Iranian official says he is seeking a negotiated solution to the nuclear enrichment program, and that Iran would never block the Straits of Hormuz. A lead US negotiator at the UN talks on global weapons trading says the US will oppose regulations on ammunition.
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

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.

NEWLY CORRECTED!!! The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < feed://

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)
