Dear Radio Friend,
            The latest Shortwave Report (November 26) is up at the website in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (3.3MB) (28:44)

This week's show features stories from Radio Netherlands, Spanish National Radio, China Radio International, and Radio Havana Cuba.
From NETHERLANDS- An analysis of the Presidential election in Ukraine which was widely disputed, though Russia was quite satisfied with the results. Then a press review on the worry that the anti-Muslim activities in the Netherlands may spread into Germany. A former Israeli Paliament member and peace activist gives insights into Colin Powell’s final visit to the Middle East.
From SPAIN- The Spanish Prime Minister Zapatero and Egypt's leader met to discuss the Palestinian situation and Zapatero’s plans for an Alliance of Civilizations between W Europe and the Muslim nations. Venezuelan President Chavez also visited Zapatero this week, lending support to the proposed alliance. Then a press review about the accusation that the Spanish government, under former Prime Minister Aznar, had been directly involved in the failed coup in Venezuela 2 years ago. Bush's presence at the APEC summit in Chile was met with large demonstrations.
From CHINA- China is holding back Western companies from its tobacco market, the largest on the planet. Iran agreed to halt development of high-grade plutonium, but maintains its right to refuse to dismantle its equipment. The Chinese President was a big hit in Cuba where he was awarded a prize and shared a podium with Fidel Castro.
From CUBA- A viewpoint on Bush’s first trip outside the US since his reelection- his presence in Chile was met with public riots and conflicts with Chilean security forces.

      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 evening at 7pm (PST) 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 (PST)
Also check out LavaLamp Radio (Japan)-
streaming the SWR, check out the schedule.
And the Partytown streams are great and informative-
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)

-- ...the essence of the evil government is that it anticipates bad conduct on the part of its citizens. Any government which assumes that the population is going to do something evil has already lost its franchise to govern.
