'Vol Calls' starts Monday

"Vol Calls," the University of Tennessee's weekly statewide coaches call-in radio show, kicks off its 22nd season on Monday at 8 p.m. Eastern time (7 p.m. Central) from the Texas Roadhouse across from West Town Mall in Knoxville.

The program can be heard on 70-plus stations that make up the Vol Radio Network across the state of Tennessee and throughout the southeast. The show can also be heard online for free each week through UTsports.com.

Bob Kesling, voice of the Tennessee Volunteers and UT's director of broadcasting, serves as the show's host. Tennessee head football coach Lane Kiffin appears on the show each week during football season. "Vol Calls" is the exclusive radio program where Tennessee fans can call in and talk with the head coaches of the Volunteers and Lady Volunteers. Vol Network veteran Brent Hubbs returns again to team with Kesling to answer questions and provide insight on UT athletics. During football season, former Vol standouts Tim Priest (1968-70), Mike Stowell (1989-91), Jeff Francis (1985-88) and Will Overstreet (1998-2001) join Kesling as rotating special guests.

Patrons visiting the Texas Roadhouse location during football season have the opportunity to register for prizes and tickets to Tennessee home football games.

"Vol Calls" runs for 36-straight weeks from Aug. 24 to April 21. Fans can place a "Vol Call" anywhere in the United States by dialing 1-800-688-8657, or Tennessee customers of Verizon Wireless can dial #TENN.
