.WAV file headers

Is there a way to extract the information from wave file headers in 
Mathematica?  The header is the first 11 words of the wave file and consists 
of 4 byte ASCII words and 4 byte integers encoded as ASCII strings.  I need 
the integers from header words 7 (samples/second), 9 (two 2 byte words, 
bytes/sample and bits/sample) , and 11 (number of bytes in the file).
