Just a quick follow-up. Today I noticed that Tune-In Radio had an option to turn off "select the best stream." I know the local station that I listen to a lot offers a 128- and a 64-kbps stream. When I was streaming it a couple days ago I noticed that it was using the 64-kbps stream, so I turned off the "select best stream" option before going out today. I streamed the local station for two hours and I noticed that the stream it selected this time was the 128 kbps stream. Not only was the sound a bit better, but it cut out only once for less than a second. I'm not sure if the reason for the better performance is the different stream (because that actually makes no sense), or the weather, or the phase of the moon.
