skipping is a problem of vinyl with broken/scratched grooves. On some
vinyl you can use a penny or nickel on top of the cartridge as weight to
carry the needle through. On one such recording I actually used my
finger to press it through and these worked for me. Whether or not it
would work for anyone else I don't know, and it does have the
possibility of permanently damaging the recording.
Ron and Paul have some good information too.
