Michael Bukht founder of Classic FM

Sad to hear of the death of Michael Bukht (aka  Michael Barry the Crafty Cook) who had several TV series and cookery books to his name. He created Classic FM and was the brains behind the launch of many local radio stations. I was a student for three months at the National Broadcasting School, which he developed and ran. It was a school for trainee radio journalists and ran like a radio station. When we picked up a short item on the press association wires that a few Argentinians had taken over a virtually uninhabited small island no-one had heard of called the Falklands he was first to push it top of the media agenda. Likeable, easygoing and hardworking and very clear about what was important. He made a big impression on me and a lot of other people too and will be missed.
