Crontab as alarm clock with ogg123

Using 'crontab -e' I set crond to play an ogg music file with ogg123.
But it only plays it if I'm logged in.
How does one make it play even if a different user is logged in or
nobody is logged in?
To debug I tried su - to another user and play the file. I got error
ALSA lib pulse.c:229:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect:
=== Could not load default driver and no driver specified in config
So I'm thinking it's the same infrastructure to prevent others music
playing when you switch users. But in my case I *want* it to play. Any
