Life As A Ghostbuster's Daughter: Violet Ramis Stiel Reflects On Her Father's Influence

Ghostbuster's Daughter: Life With My Dad, Harold Ramis
"Ghostbuster's Daughter: Life With My Dad, Harold Ramis" by Violet Ramis Stiel.

Behind the scenes, Harold Ramis is probably best known for writing and directing the classic 1990s' comedy "Groundhog Day."

But it was on-screen where he became one of the most recognized funny men in the country, via "Stripes" and the "Ghostbusters" movies.

Ramis died in 2014 of an autoimmune disease at the age of 69.

His daughter, Violet Ramis Stiel, remembers her dad and his career in her new book, "Ghostbuster’s Daughter: Life with My Dad, Harold Ramis." 

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
