What is the Difference Between “Transmission” and “Retransmission”?
It’s got nothing to do with Joy Division.
A transmission of a performance occurs when songs are sent by a certain device or process (radio, television, satellite, telephone) and received in an entirely different place.
A retransmission is a second dispatch of said performance to yet another place. An example is when a cable provider broadcasts a concert by receiving a signal from a local television station and sending it to a third location: your living room.
