I agree with Bryn that Audacity should do the trick. I use it to join up speech and music for podacasts all the time, ok mostly in mp3 but WAV too. I do a lot of manual click removal with Audacity cutting and pasting in WAVs works just fine. You can stack up the waveforms of 'tracks' and adjust the silences between (milliseconds or seconds) then save the whole lot as a single wav file. (my podcasts are made up of 22 waveforms, stacked up on Audacity then saved as one) so your silences between music can be set accurately as your ears wish
I'm currently using their 1.3 Beta version but I see they are now offering 2.0

what you want to do seems fairly simple
so Audacity should be fine
my preference (after trying more or less everything , pro tools, reaper, ardour, digital performer, sadie, logic et al) is Audition (which used to be Cooledit) which I find very accurate indeed and fast workflow
some of the clicks etc will be due to zero crossings which most editors will detect and allow you to trim to (I think most versions of Audacity do this)
What do you mean by a zero crossing? Thanks.
It's where the waveform 'crosses' over from positive to negative (or vice versa). Of course, this will not often happen at the some time in both channels of a stereo file, so I tend to do a crafty very short fade to silence during a half wave cycle at such points. That gets rid of any hint of a click on either track, and the fades out and back in are do brief that nobody will notice.
