Script to run another script with wait time

I want to create a script which calls another script with certain interval.
Script "A" should call script "B" every 60 seconds.
Script "A" should also be able to call other scripts such as "C", "D", etc. at an interval of 60, 120, 180 seconds respectively.

Please help.

script=$1 interval=$2
