Default Dragging a slap of concrete noise: '91 Integra

My daughter drives this car and has asked me to check out the noise. I
did. Last night. I didn't get 20' (driveway) when I stopped and looked
under the car for something dragging. Nothing. When you move you hear
it. Not related to braking (what does a sticking caliper sound like?).
I told her to take it to Honda ASAP. Maybe tomorrow. I dread her
driving it like that. Any clues?

1) Brakes down to the steel.
2) Who knows?

Time for hands-on diagnosis.

jack up each wheel and turn them,see if the brakes are dragging,check the
pads to see if one side is worn much farther than the other.(stuck caliper)

Specifically caused by stuck pads and/or slide pins.

Hi,
I'd suggest it's the brake rotor splash guard scraping against the brake
rotor.
Cheers

Let me refine the sound since I drove the car to an independent shop
last night. Sounds like a 737 at 1000ft when you start out, then
diminishes rapidly though I can still hear some light rubbing sound
thereafter. Will find out soon.

Thanks for the update, but I have a question: "stuck" specifically...how?

There are many parts that can get "stuck".

My daughter may not have recognized the squeak/squeal of brake pads
wearing thru. It was metal on metal.
