Finally, there was nothing like an evening set aside to make prints. The tools included a bottle of Jack Daniels, some Miles Davis vinyl 33rpm albums and a good sodium vapor safe light. At the end of the night I had 7 good prints and 40 mediocre ones in the wastebasket.

Those were the days!

You sound more like W. Eugene Smith than Weegee.  Except I think he liked vodka.  In his later years, he had a tv with a red cellophane wrapper on the screen so he could watch tv while printing. But music was a favorite companion in the darkroom.
