Songs are identified with Shazam if needed. I usually use KiwiSDR receivers. Reception from my QTH is using an SDRPlay RSP1A for SWL with a 40 meter band Inverted V at 40 feet. Kenwood TS-570D for ham use.

I suspect the tune you folks heard just before sign off, and could not identify, was Lilliborlero, a BBC interval signal tune.  I heard "Not The BBC" recently and that's how it closed.

Here is Lilliborlero:
