A squeal more than a roar. It comes and goes, hasnt done it for a day or so now. It also will cease when you take a turn. So I'm leaning more toward somthing brakes related, loose brake pad or something.

Well one definite symptom is when the wheel falls off. I had that happen many years ago in a company car. I heard some funny noises but ignored them because it was late and I was a long way from home. Like to pretend I've got more sense now.
Wouldn't really expect noise from pads to disappear when you turn but might be worth whipping the pads out, checking for stones, and getting some copper grease in there. Checking the things that are easy is a good start.
The noise you're describing sounds like baffle plate noise. It will usually start to squeel once the brakes are warmed up and might not make any noise at all in cold weather. Plus it will stop when you take a turn. Do a quick test and see if the noise goes away or changes when you apply the brakes, if not you might check the baffle plates.
