Phoenix, Ariz. - Since 2012 Scott Helmer’s concerts have helped raise more than $2 Million Dollars for good causes across America ranging from military veterans and their families, equine and pet rescues, food banks, non-profit theatres, suicide and crisis prevention, special needs children and adults, high schools and colleges, and more. In addition, Helmer has opened for iconic acts like Heart, Eddie Money, Jeff Bridges, 3 Doors Down, Eric Burdon and the Animals, and Big Country, and now he's launching a talk radio program later this month.
The Scott Helmer Show premieres Sunday, March 12, 2017, at 11 pm EDT/ 8 pm PDT. The format is a LIVE two-hour, long-form interview talk radio show airing Sunday through Thursday. Each week, Helmer and his guests will discuss topics ranging from entertainment, current affairs, unexplained phenomena, conspiracy and more. Broadcasting live via Spreaker, his website, and The Scott Helmer Show Mobile App, each episode will also be archived on social media and as a podcast on iTunes. In the coming weeks, additional outlets will include iHeart Radio, Talk Stream Live (TSL), and more.
'To say that I am a fan of talk radio would be an understatement,' says Helmer. 'I first became hooked on the format while listening to Art Bell and Coast to Coast AM as a kid, and the love for it has never left me.' He adds, 'talk radio, specifically late night talk has helped me get through some of the toughest times in my life.' 'I'm hopeful that my new show, our guests, and callers will not only educate and entertain the audience, but that we can also be a welcomed voice in the night.'

Why has Helmer devoted his entire musical career to helping others? In 2008 as the world economy was spiraling out of control, Scott Helmer sat alone in his car on a deserted mountain road in Northern Arizona with a gun in his mouth, ready to take his own life. After making a series of serious mistakes he ended losing everything including his family, all of his possessions, his career and most importantly his self-respect. In the seconds before pulling the trigger Helmer cried out to God for help and said, ‘I don’t want to do this. If you help me through this I won’t give up and will use all of this bad stuff to help others and to make a difference, so that no one else has to go through what I am going through right now." Helmer then put the gun down, decided to never give up, picked up his guitar and began to keep the promise he made that fateful day.
On November 28 & 29, 2016, Helmer’s ‘Never Give Up' Tour included an attempt to break Hunter Hayes Guinness World Records title for ‘Most Live Concerts in 24 Hours (multiple cities).’ Helmer successfully completed 12 concerts across California and Arizona in the 24-hour time frame and is awaiting formal review of the evidence and issuance of the new record title from Guinness judges.
