Maybe it's your Network.

Agreed, it's probably the network or interference from some other device (portable phone, remote printer, etc.). It could also be in some of the buffer settings within iTunes. I can't recall which are the usual suspects but you might do a search on optimizing iTunes/airport express streaming settings. Short of that an ethernet connection should solve it, but that defeats the advantages of wireless. If iTunes is not doing the same stalling while listening on your native host computer (not streaming) then you know it is not iTunes, but the network
From Airport Utility Help:
"Minimizing interference in an AirPort network"
"You may experience network performance problems if a microwave oven or other source of interference is used frequently near your base station or Time Capsule. To help minimize interference, turn on interference robustness."
Also, don't forget to update both OS & AE; my latest software update included AE which hadn't had an update for quite some time.
