I'd start poking around the 'lmsensors' project.  see here, for

No, you'ld want to be able to turn it off (the software would write  
values over the i2c bus to make the speaker turn on/off.).
You'ld also want to be able to use the same PZ speaker for more than  
one radio, but again, this is just software.
