Depends on squid version..

1.1.X: grep '\.mp3$" cache/log

2.0: Little more complicated. Squid 2 uses a hash of the URL as store
key. You may need to reverse engineer the store format and search the
cache directories to find files that maches a given pattern.

Or you could track access.log, and get mp3 files others have requested
(use "Cache-Control: only-if-cached" to limit this to cached objects).
