stock '08 se radio quit working today

Not sure what's going on here. tonight I get in my car and my stereo doesn't come on. When I start the car, the head unit displays "Ford Focus" blinks for a second (like it was going switch over to the normal radio display) then just goes to displaying fm2 and the RDS flashes.
I first thought it was due to the outside temp being a balmy 7*F so I turned the heater on high and drove about 9 miles to town. the radio started playing for maybe 20-30 seconds and went back to nothing but the fm2 and RDS.
On my way home I had the heater on high once again and the warmer it got in the car the more the RDS would flash. I was looking for a place to start looking since it's so stinking cold outside here.

Any help to fix this before contacting the dealer would be greatly welcomed..
