Accessibility Comments: 

When in the table of all your stations, to begin playing a station that isn't already playing, route your mouse pointer with vo+command+F5, then literally double click the physical mouse/trackpad. If you dont' have one, then sorry, boss, dont' know what to tell ya.

A few of the buttons aren't labeled, but they're pretty obvious. You start with a checkbox at the top. This is a play stop toggle. When it's checked, you're playing. When it's unchecked, you're paused. The next button you'll hit I think is the skip button. It'll be all off by itself. Then you'll have a cluster of two buttons side by side. I may have that backwards, but either way... the two buttons side by side are the thumb up button, then the thumb down button. Be sure to look at the preferences window as there are some cool things in there you can do with Growl if you have it installed. Note that Growl won't work unless PianoPub is hidden down in the dock. If it's in the foreground, it won't work, even when enabled, so don't freak out if it's not working for ya.

Usability: 

There are some minor accessibility issues with this app, but they are easy to deal with.
