Background

From the February 20th 1953 edition of the Ludington News:

Radio -- C.E. Butterfield head
 
     NEW YORK (AP) -- Marlene Dietrich, seen on the screen for years as the glamor star that she is, has turned her talents to radio.  She has a Thursday series on CBS, after a season on ABC.
     Using just her low, caressing voice to depict the drama she once displayed in visual glamor, she calls the program " Time for Love," a mixture of international episodes, romances and mysterious adventures.
     In the radio drama, with each broadcast a complete story, she playes Diane Le Volta, a cafe Chanteuse who gets involved in all sorts of intrigue.  She relies on the throaty quality of her voice and the "hallo" introduction of each program to provide a mental picture of this individual.
     Miss Dietrich is working for the same network which has been starring her daughter, Maria Riva, in its TV division.  Maria has appeared in numerous outstanding TV dramas between household duties which includes the care of two sons, a part in which Grandma Marlene sometimes cooperates by baby sitting.

From the February 28th 1953 edition of the Logansport Pharos-Tribune:

 Marlene Dietrich Happy She's In Radio and Not Television head

     NEW YORK (UP) -- Marlene Dietrich, the movie glamour queen is quite happy with things as they are.  She is on radio and not in television.
     "I own my own radio show," she explained.  "It is written and directed as I desire, it calls for a certain amount of activity without requiring me to work to the point of collapse, and I have a sponsor who pays me good money.  It is a nice arrangement and I like it."
     She's still appearing in the movies, she pointed out, for the benefit of those who feel she has other beguiling assets besides her voice.
     "I have no idea when I might do television," she continued.  "There have been many offers.  For the present I am content to sit and watch it.  They are improving it all the time.
     "Besides I have never been one to jump into new things just for the sake of doing something novel.  There doesn't seem to be anyhting for me to gain by doing that."
     The perennially shapely and beautiful star devised the formula for her radio show and works constantly with the writers on the scripts of "Time For Love," which is on hte CBS network each Thursday.
     Miss Dietrich, of course, knows plenty about television.  She's watched her daughter, Maria Riva, become a TV dramatic star after a brief stage career.
     "The amount of work involved is unbelievable," Miss Dietrich commented.  "The movies are restful by compoarison.  I sometimes wonder how my daughter manages to do two or three hour-long dramatic shows a month."
     Her son-in-law, William Riva, one of the better young set designers, is now on the design staff of the National Broadcasting Company.
     "You never know at what hour of the day or night he will have to rush through a designing job," Miss Dietrich said.  "He has about as much regularity in his life as a doctor."
     Their hectic working situation in the Riva family sometimes gives the star her favorite job--babysitting with her two grandsons, John Michael and John Peter Riva, aged five and three respectively.
     "I don't get to do as much of that as I would like to do," she said.  "Some nights I have to devote to my own baby--the radio program."

From the May 8th 1952 edition of the San Mateo Times:
 Boredom Cause of Old Age head
     HOLLYWOOD, May 8.--Marlene Dietrich, the glamorous grandma, feels sorry for women who grow old.  She thinks it's not necessary.  For herself, she say she doesn't have time to grow old.
     "Most women don't have enough to do," she explained.  "Either that, or they have some sort of drudgery which ages them before their time.
     "Because they don't have enough to do, they are bored.  Boredom ages one.  They sit down too much.  Sitting down makes you fat.  They are envious of their husbands, who are busy, so they grow angry.  Anger gives you lines."
     The solution, she said, is to stay busy, with many different occupations and interests.  That way, she contends, one will never grown old.
     The formula has worked for her.  She is one of the busiest women in the world today and conceded to be one of the loveliest.
     When RKO-Radio premiered her newest picture, "Rancho Notorious," in Chicago recently, Miss Dietrich appeared on the stage and sang several numbers.  For her final selection she changed into the tights and form-fitting bodice she wears for one scene.  There hadn't been such a chorus of wolf whistles since Sally Rand made her first appearance at the Chicago world's fair.
     There still isn't a pair of legs in Hollywood that can match hers for symmetry and grace and her complexion is smooth as a teen-agers.
     As for being busy, no one can doubt she is.  She stars in a weekly radio show, "Cafe Istanbul," from New York.  That would be a full-time job for lots of people.  Still, she is in Hollywood already discussing her next film with Fidelity Pictures.  She has another film on the fire to be made in Europe this summer and she is helping re-work the script.
     At the same time she is working on the script of play for which she is set to star this fall on Broadway.  She also is eyeing a series of television guest shots as preparation for possibly taking "Cafe Istanbul" into video next year.
     For recreation, she keeps up a steady program of exercise and self-education.  She tries to swim every day and plays tennis as often as possible.  She keeps abreast of the current books and has a vast interest in music and art.  She even dabbles in painting herself but admits her efforts meet with small success.
     She thinks the rapid aging of most women is a terrible tragedy that could be avoided if women would broaden their horizons, accept more responsibilities and undertake more cultural projects.
     "One never grows old," she philosophized.
