	I recall that there are certain items which make 'noises'.. they 
have an 'AUDIO' bit.  There must be some procedure which runs through the 
objects in the game and makes these noises, so you could just take a look 
at that and do something similar for objects with a SPECPROC bit.  I 
don't know offhand where it would be, unfortunately...
