Brian Kay's undemanding show (Radio 2, 7.30pm) tonight features veteran entertainers Richard Stilgoe and Peter Skellem. Both known for their witty songs at the piano, they decided to perform as a double act while sharing a dressing room at the 1982 Royal Variety performance. Their current touring show, A Quiet Night Out, features their familiar blend of gentle cynicism and feelgood music. On Radio 3, Sir John Drummond hosts the Stravinsky Evening (7.15pm) from Manchester's Bridgewater Hall, an event celebrating Stravinsky's three great orchestral ballet scores. This is followed by a performance of Les Noces from the Barbican by Ensemble Modern and the BBC Singers. The evening is also a tribute to Diaghilev, whose Ballets Russes revolutionised dance between the years of 1909-1929 as well as giving rise to some of the century's most dramatic music. Performances of Stravinsky's Firebird (7.30pm) and Petrushka (8.20pm) are interspersed with discussion about this remarkable period. Jack Dee presents a sardonic feature on the rise and fall of the suburban swimming pool in Dreaming by the Pool (Radio 4, 11am). Recalling the 1968 film, The Swimmer, in which Burt Lancaster swims home from work via his neighbours' pools, Dee asks how the pool lost its cool 1950s image as a symbol of new Britain and became instead an embarrassing white elephant constantly reminding its owners of the inadequacies of the British climate.
