How do I find a musical interlude played on NPR?

I followed a few NPR links found on Google, but none turned up anything. It was a Beatley sounding song with a bass and sitar. It played Monday, 10/21/19, between 3:00 and 5:00 CDT, either on "On Point" or "Fresh Air."

Part of the show or between shows?

Yeah, Shazam does not work on unique covers, or music tributes. NHK has a pleasant guitar riff during their weather that seems familiar and Shazam was useless for that.

Between segments within a show. The music only lasts a few seconds. I have determined it was during "All Things Considered" between 4 and 5 PM CDT.

I had already looked there and didn't find it. I think these 15-second interludes are in a different category.

You're right. They used to be there.

I don't think On Point or Fresh Air provides that info, even to member stations in rundowns. (I work in public radio). So you'd need to either find an audio archive of that specific show and shazam it, or contact the producers of the show.

You could email the show. I once emailed a show about an intro sound that I was fascinated by and they responded. If your message makes it to the right person they'll be happy and flattered that you'd take pleasure in such details.

Found it:

"Little Nature" by Chris Joss

Here is a video:

This is very evocative of the Beatles, Ravi Shankar, Traffic, Donovan, and War. And, a couple of chords from "Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy Theme."

I've had a similar experience when calling an engineer about a local TV station doing test broadcasts in stereo. (It was awhile back, lol).
