Here, try this but remember your C:\ path or wherever you put your binary file is relative to the SQL server box and not client where you run the query. If SQL is installed on your client computer run it from there ok:

create table #tempfile (audio_file varbinary(max))
INSERT INTO #tempfile   SELECT * FROM OPENROWSET(BULK 'c:\audio_test.wma', SINGLE_BLOB) as f;
select * from #tempfile
drop table #tempfile
