What's wrong with this registration form?

Hi, I'm trying to figure out how to explain to a friend why I can't sign up for Pandora or even use it.
The first time I tried last year I couldn't even find the registration form. Now I can find it, but:
#1 I can fill it out up to the zip code. Things that should be buttons, checkboxes and listboxes are nothing of the kind.
#2. neither Window Eyes 6.0 nor Jaws 9.0 can see anything on the page with the mouse pointer/jaws cursor with IE6 or FF2.
#3. Even if I do register I'll have low usability, I found a hack in a journal on last.fm but it's limited, if the search engine pulls down more than one result I'm sunk, can't play that station. I understand that part of it is all flash, but what's up with this form? PS if you actually want to sign up you have to be in the US or using a proxy to spoof a US address.
