    Too vague (and too curt). How about "please"? I note you have 51 posts - but 0 thanks. But this ought to point you in the right direction. Sound is a big problem in HTML4 and the method used here is really only useful in IE and Firefox. The HTML5 <audio> tag is to be preferred but is only supported by the most modern browsers.

    <span id ="message" style = "color:red";> </span>
    <script type = "text/javascript">
    var today = new Date();
    var BigDay = new Date("July 20, 2012 17:00:00 UTC");  
    timeInSecs = parseInt((BigDay.getTime() - today.getTime())/1000);
    if (timeInSecs <= 0 && timeInSecs >= -3600) {  // show the message between chosen time and one hour afterwards
    document.getElementById("message").innerHTML = "The time you wish to be reminded about has arrived";
    self.location = "boom.wav";  // your sound file. This may pop up a separate window depending on plugins installed. 
    For IE ONLY you could place the following tag after the message <span>
    <bgsound id="bgsound_id" loop=1 src="">
    and in the script

    All the code given in this post has been tested and is intended to address the question asked.
    Unless stated otherwise it is not just a demonstration.
