Dear Radio Friend,
            The latest Shortwave Report (November 25) is up at the website
< >in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (3.3MB) (29:00)

This week's show features stories from Radio Netherlands, China Radio International, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From NETHERLANDS- Israeli jets are dropping leaflets over Beirut denouncing Hezbollah rebels, creating fear that Israel may be preparing to attack Lebanon. After years of fighting, Nepal's Maoist rebels say that they are willing to end their insurgency, join mainstream politics to end the monarchy and create democracy.
From CHINA- Russian President Putin has announced the building of an oil pipeline to supply Asian countries, though the territorial dispute with Japan over a chain of islands remains unresolved. Russia and Japan have never signed a formal peace treaty following WW2.
From CUBA- Venezuela will ship discounted home heating oil to charities and low income residents of Massachusetts, in a deal arranged by a congressman and Hugo Chavez. Then a Viewpoint on the criticism the Bush administration expressed toward the meeting between the Argentine President Kirchner and Hugo Chavez- this follows their strong rejection of the FTAA and their further development of the South American trade bloc, Mercosur.
From RUSSIA- Al-Jazeera says the US is blocking an international investigation into the recently discovered Iraqi prisons whose inmates have been tortured and never charged. The US is developing more military bases near the Russian border, and the potential threat to Russia has been heatedly discussed among their citizens and politicians. The US now has 1500 military bases outside its own territory.

      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)

-- I can think of no faster way to unite the American people behind George W. Bush than a terrorist attack on an American target overseas. And I believe George W. Bush will quickly unite the American people through his foreign policy.
- Henry Kissinger, 2000
