Famed Beatles producer and founding member of the Horrible Mugshot Hall of Fame Phil Spector is beginning to serve his 19-year prison sentence for murder, and made a specific request to help him pass the time: An iPod.

Prisoners at Spector's new forced California residence are permitted certain objects, often musical instruments or personal mementos. Spector requested an iPod and a TV, though interestingly not any musical instruments; his wife says he's not likely to want to jam with the other prisoners. We'd love to get a look at Spector's iPod, as long as it's away from Spector himself. The dude is more than a little creepy. [NME, thanks Brian Ashcraft!]
