This caught our eye this morning on Masslive.com: A story about "Dr. Westchesterson's" hip hop paen to the awesomeness of Western Mass.

Since dropping on YouTube last Friday, the catchy "413" has gone viral with nearly 58,000 hits. 

Dr. Westchesterson claims to have fled Portland, Ore., after dispensing medical marijuana and now spends his time with select patients and working on his music career. He also says he graduated from Agawam High School ("Shake yourself from the senior prom, 'cause I come straight out of Agawam."), which he features in his video along with chillin' at Yankee Candle and shooting hoops at the Basketball Hall of Fame. Also getting shoutouts are Friendly's, the food court at the Holyoke Mall, UMass, Springfield, Dr. Suess and local eateries.

What's missing? Berkshire and Franklin counties, which has caused some griping from fans. On his blog, Dr. Westchesterson promises to remedy that oversight:

  When I read comments on my YouTube channel that certain people in Pittsfield and Greenfield and Holyoke were a little dissapointed that their particular little corners of W. Mass weren't represented in the video - it made me want to do one thing and one thing only.

Make another video that includes even MORE gems and hidden treasures of the 413.  Like the Volleyball Hall of Fame in Holyoke.  And the Bridge of Flowers in Shelburne.  And the Red Lion Inn in Stockbridge.  And the inside of the womens' only dorms at each of the seven sister schools.  ;)

May we also suggest Jack's Hot Dogs in North Adams, Joe's Diner in Lee or the Highland or Teo's in Pittsfield? We've also got lakes, a natural bridge, trains, Norman Rockwell, the Berkshire Museum, Williams College, Tanglewood and the tallest mountain in the state.

"Put your hands in the air for the 413!"
