Brakes squeak AFTER release on my `69 w114

Hi, my 69 w114 has standard (as far as I can tell) four wheel disc brake assembly.

I have tons of pad, no leaks or apparent problems with the system, and she stops like a champ (and with no screeching).

However, only after the car is warm, the brakes squeak after I release the pedal and begin to drive off. Sounds like the pad is dragging on the rotor, somehow the caliper is not releasing.

Please arm me with some advice before I go get taken advantage of by a mechanic who will tell me I need replacement calipers and rotors all around.

Thank you!!!
