Well you can call it that, but it's technically a bumper. A bumper is music or video in radio or TV marking distinction between the program and commercial breaks.
And if you talk over it, like in a commercial, it's bed music.

But he asked about coming back from breaks, not rambling on with a music bed under chatting to keep cadence and make things seem upbeat :action-sm

"Bumper" is the correct term.

"Bed" would be something played under a segment, like the music WFAN uses for it's updates (which I've been looking for for years).

"Rejoiner" could be used as another term for a bumper. But you can't call the music going into a commercial a rejoiner.
