I like jazz to print by myself, typically streaming WWOZ or occasionally a play list off the iPod ap of my iPhone. But I do like music when printing.

I understand Drew's point, but when I load film holders or developing tanks I turn the dial toward the wall (which is currently black until I get the real darkroom built - hanging black plastic as I mentioned) and I have no LEDs on. I develop in daylight Jobo tanks so no worries there. When I used deep tanks I used a countdown to beep timer that's not illuminated, but though I still have the tanks and thought about using them with Diafine, I haven't used them in years. So yeah, when I'm working with film that's different, and I work accordingly.
