Thanks for your answer,

CSS and JS code takes about 0,5 sec on the first call, then are in cache 
and are not  the most important impact in the speed, the html code takes 
more then 1 second, perhaps I need a more powerful server, now is 
running in a EC2 instance C1.medium only for the catalog.

this is the web site: http://www.astroradio.com

I will continue looking for  to optimize the performance.

Thanks again
