XM or Monitor?

OTR Digester Henry Howard notes that the XM Satellite network incorporates strains of the theme from the old Monitor program in their logo. Now, I don't know that theme. Monitor arrived at the tail end of the old-time radio era and, to my knowledge, very few are in circulation. I'm actually not aware of any. Fibber McGee and Molly ended their radio careers there doing five minute bits. Henry apparent contacted XM to see if this similarity was, in fact, intentional. Turns out it was. I don't know if the Monitor theme was a musical piece, a sound effect, a vocal intro or what. Anyone have it in mp3?
