The Muzak was playing

Here's the context:

I walked in the store. "The Muzak was playing and Marlene was reading the Enquirer and gumbling about Burt Isker..."

The muzak is a name of a person?

(That Summer, Sarah Dessen, p.42)

This is the first time i see that name in the story.

    Muzak is background music for stores and companies -- sometimes known as "elevator music." Wikipedia has much more information about this pervasive art form. :)

    Kiku, don't forget to search for previous threads...:)

    Here's one I found by putting muzak into Dictionary and thread title search at the top of the page: The Muzak.
