I’m On My Way by The Proclaimers is todays featured song.

On today’s date in 1962, Identical twin brothers, Craig and Charlie Reid from the Scottish band The Proclaimers were born. They had the 1987 UK No.3 single ‘Letter From America’, 1988 UK No.6 album ‘Sunshine Over Leith’ as well as the 2007 UK No.1 single with the Comic Relief charity hit ‘I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles).’
