Originally founded in 1948 as a forum on international affairs, the Conference on World Affairs expanded rapidly in its early years to encompass the arts, media, science, diplomacy, technology, environment, spirituality, politics, business, medicine, human rights, and so on. Roger Ebert, who participated in the CWA for four decades, always referred to the CWA as "the Conference on Everything Conceivable."
Tuesday on First Take, we have two reports from the Boulder conference. First, at 7:35am, a preview of the conference, which continues all this week. At 8:35am, Steve and Arturo are joined by longtime CWA participant jazz pianist Don Grusin. Grusin is a performer for the annual Jazz Concert, taking place Tuesday night at Macky Auditorium.
