That concludes the IndyRadio re-broadcast of The Shortwave Report for February, 2014. Brainwash from other parts of the world is different enough from our own that by lining up these reports together, you might derive a suggestion of the truth.
The future of radio comes not from the Tower of Corporate Media but through WiFi and cellphone it now belongs to us. Circa 2014 we have a window of opportunity since web radio is received on desktops, mobiles and phones without added charges, and there are more than 50,000 free independent stations you can access with simple software. You don't need to download files, or worry about how much storage your device has available.
