"Thanksgivukkah," the song featuring the cast of TV's "Dish Nation," is now available on iTunes.

The track celebrates the Nov. 28 overlap of the Thanksgiving and Hanukkah holidays. This convergence, which last happened in 1888, will not happen again for another 77,000 years.

"Dish Nation" is the nationally syndicated television program highlighting the nation's "funniest" radio shows, riffing on what's hot and happening that day in pop culture.

The program airs weeknights at 6 p.m. on WWOR-TV/Channel 9.

WSOU-FM's (89.5) general manager Mark Maben recently received the College Media Association's Distinguished Advisor Award in the "four- year broadcast" category.

The award recognizes the achievements of an individual who works closely with students, helps them reach their full potential and goes above and beyond on a consistent basis.

"I was surprised and humbled when I learned I was being given this award. Because it is peer-nominated, it is quite an honor to realize that my daily efforts mentoring tomorrow's broadcasters have been recognized by my colleagues," said Maben. "Of course, it is really the Seton Hall University students at WSOU that deserve this honor because without them, there would be no reason for me to be here!"
