I failed to mention in the OP, that the car had just been in for service at my indy shop. I trust my indy a lot, but I'm not sure he id'd this one. He said he didn't/couldn't get it to 'squeal' so he checked serpentine, the tensioner, and adjusted it, AND...

Said that what I was hearing was the air pump making a racket and he went ahead and disconnected it to render it useless. Well, it wasn't the air pump I was hearing because IT did not make a squealing sound! (Reminder to self: call indy shop soon to inform them of a misdiagnosed problem.)

Unfortunately I don't have time until later this week to delve into it but wanted to get some ideas as to the direction to start. Thanks for the input it does help me out!
