    Sorry, I can find no information on the whereabouts of either one.



    .....The Grumbleweeds Radio Show, a series of television programmes made between 1983 and 1988 for Granada Television mixing elements of the live show with fast-moving sketches.

    But it was on radio that the Grumbleweeds made their biggest breakthrough, with a successful BBC Radio 2 series, The Grumbleweeds Radio Show, running from 1979 to 1988. Fifteen series were recorded, and it received the "Best Radio Show" award from The Television and Radio Industries Awards in 1983.

    In late 1987, brothers Albert and Carl decided to leave the group, leaving the others augmented by backing musicians for the final television programmes which were shown in 1988. By 1989, slimmed down to a three-piece, they secured a new BBC Radio 2 series, Someone And The Grumbleweeds, which ran for three years. Maurice Lee decided to leave the group in 1997, and was briefly replaced by comedian Tony Joe. Lee is now a solo musician (performing under the nom de plume of Maurice Grumbleweed) and paints in his spare time.

    The Grumbleweeds, now reduced to their two founder members Colvill and Walker, remain a popular attraction on the cabaret circuit. The duo have continued performing in most aspects of entertainment, appearing in television series such as Emmerdale, Coronation Street, Heartbeat and Max and Paddy's Road to Nowhere.
