Gormley has since recorded a number of music videos for the show. The low-budget music videos are produced by Phil Thomas Katt, a local musician and former radio DJ. The videos are characterised by their frequent use of green screen effects, local scenery and, quite often, comedic or dramatic story lines. Katt runs The Uncharted Zone with his co-host and longtime friend Tommy Robinetti. The two can be found introducing each video with quirky commentary and anecdotes about each featured artist. In addition to the television broadcast, The Uncharted Zone began posting videos on YouTube in 2007.
These videos gained popularity during 2009. In a 2010 interview, Phil Thomas Katt explained: “The videos had been on YouTube for a while, and then, last year, things really took off.” Thanks to these YouTube videos, Katt became a cult icon to a growing group of fans and fellow musicians, and Gormley was propelled to internet stardom.
