Technical Question About Streaming

I've noticed that most channels stream at 129kbps, but last night while listening to SiriusXM Stars Too (Sirius 108/XM139) the channel streamed at 49kbps. I recorded this particular channel and saved the show as a 48kbps mp3, but going back and listening, the quality is much worse. So obviously a 49k stream does not equate to a 48k mp3.

My question is, what mp3 bit rate would be closer to the actual stream?
