With you 56k modem, you should try sticking with the lower bit rate streams. Stay around 24kBps, 20kBps or 16kBps. Sorry to say, but those are going to sound quite rancid.
With a 56k modem, you can't
listen above 32kBps (32kBps if you have clean phone lines and a good connection). . .so 48 and 56kBps streams are out. And, of course, anything higher than 56kBps is out.
You need a faster connection. If you can get DSL or Cable in you area, I would upgrade.
That's why it skips.
Hope that helps.
