Dear Radio Friend,
            The latest Shortwave Report (August 3) is up at the website in both broadcast quality (13.3MB) and quickdownload or streaming form (4.9MB) (28:59)

     This week's show features stories from China Radio International, Radio Netherlands, Radio Havana Cuba, and the Voice of Russia.
From CHINA- The UN Security Council has approved a peacekeeping force for Darfur, combining African Union and UN forces. The IAEA has completed the first phase of its inspection of N Korea's nuclear facilities. Condi Rice is in the Middle East ostensibly to further the peace process in the region. Condi says that selling weapons to Saudi Arabia and others will improve the chances of peace in the region. Iran is outraged by the US sales of weapons to its neighbors and further support of Israel([search]).
From NETHERLANDS- An analysis of the US weapons deal in the Middle East by a member of Jane's Defence Weekly, considering the danger of more high-tech weapons in the region. A new report by OxFam and Iraqi NGOs point out that the violence in Iraq is masking the ever worsening humanitarian crisis in the country.
From CUBA- California Senator Feinstein wrote an editorial calling for the closure of Guantanamo Bay prison. Mexico has again urged the US to alter its plans to build a continuous wall because of ecological damage, threatening a complaint at the International Court of Justice in the Hague. Then a Viewpoint on the end of 38 years of British occupation in Ireland.
From RUSSIA- The new chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff named 7 mistakes the Bush administration has made in Iraq, stating that force alone will never solve the crisis in Iraq.

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 (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 and Saturday at 11am(PST)
The Shortwave Report may be downloaded as a podcast from < > or iTunes (search for "shortwave" in podcasts)
Check out the amazing streams at < >
And Radio For Peace International at < >

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)

"We are witnesses to a form of propaganda that is transforming this nation from a once bright-shining pulsar of informed democracy into a dark nebula of nothingness where everything that matters is neglected and all that degenerates and indoctrinates prospers."
- Manuel Valenzuela: 'The Stupefaction of a Nation'
