You can try to open it using a sound editor like CoolEdit or Sound Forge and then save it into mp3 format.

I've looked at my copy of Cool Edit 96 and it doesn't have support for a PS file. In fact, I think PS is a PostScript file under Windows, so I've no idea how it works out to be an audio format.

In the past I have downloaded sound files with funny extentions and sometimes if your rename them with .wav or .mp3 they will play.....

You may think it sounds crazy - but it isn't.

I've got music from Audiofind before with this extension - if you simply rename it under dos i.e. Start, Run, "command".  Then change to the directory of the file.  Now type ren "oldfilename.ps" "newfilename.mp3"

You could rename under explorer - but it occasionally fails to work

Hope that helps

Sirnick has already mentioned bout renameing the file to either wav or mp3. Now stop proposing answer like that.

it could be an mp3 file, as said by mmanders.  

if not try renaiming it to .zip and opening it.  ive never heard of that format most mp3 sites renmae their mps to some other file extension to avoid detection by their site admins

Just rewrite the file extension to "filename.mp3". before doing that, copy the file to another folder so if that does not work, you will have the original copy.
